Higher Education for the 21st Century

Welcome to Minerva


Combining an innovative curriculum with an unparalleled, immersive global experience, Minerva is the only university built to prepare students for success in the 21st century. Many current Minerva students participated in Model United Nations in high school, introducing them to global issues, collaborative problem-solving, and integrating academics and extracurricular interests.

To exhibit our commitment to prepare youth to be effective global leaders, we are offering a $10,000 scholarship to a Model UN student admitted to Minerva who exhibits financial need.

We are now accepting applications for Fall 2022 enrollment.
