Scholarship Value: Minerva is offering full academic scholarship for students. This scholarship is designed to cover tuition for four years amounting to $40,000.
Requirements: Their admissions criteria and four-stage process focus on academic performance, individual achievement, and potential for innovation and leadership.
Once you apply, they review your transcript, appraise evidence of your accomplishments outside the classroom, analyze your scores on our proprietary assessments, and evaluate you for fit with the program.
As a composite of your abilities and personal attributes, grades are an important indication of your future academic performance.
Fluency in written and spoken English is critical. Because all classes are conducted in English, your proficiency with the language must be at a very high level in order to succeed in the very challenging academic environment.
They also look at extracurricular accomplishments that clearly indicate your initiative, creativity and leadership. While they value skill in all three of these domains, evidence of your achievements should verifiably demonstrate strength in at least one.
Their unique set of cognitive and non-cognitive assessments are a validated measure of the qualities associated with innovators and leaders. Again, they consider your strongest scores together with the average of the others. Looking for evidence of exceptional abilities and characteristics in at least one area, they build upon their understanding of your potential.
As the last stage of the process, they conduct a web-based video evaluation to determine your suitability and ensure your readiness to attend Minerva.
How to apply: This scholarship is for students who are admitted to Minerva and have demonstrated financial need.
You will only need to submit the standard Minerva Application and financial aid forms to be considered.
At the end of the Minerva application you will be asked to indicate your interest in a specific Minerva scholarship category. Although you can only indicate one category, you will be considered for all categories.
