Full tuition Minerva Undergraduate Scholarships 2015 for Unique Global University Program

Deadline: March 15, 2015

Minerva Schools at KGI, a newly accredited top tier US university is offering 10 Full Tuition Fee scholarships for aspiring global leaders and innovators. Minerva provides Undergraduate university experience for the world’s brightest, most curious and globally-minded students – educating them to become the next generation of global leaders, innovators and critical thinkers. With a reinvented curriculum designed by former Harvard faculty, they teach students how to think, not what to think – equipping them with the tools needed to be successful in the 21st century.

Combining innovative teaching technology with a global rotation program, students move around the world in cohorts and live together in residence halls in up to 7 different world cities such as San Francisco, Buenos Aires and Berlin – providing a truly unique global immersive experience.

Tuition fees are set at $ 10.000 per year, less than a quarter of peer institutions. Minerva has no caps on admissions – anyone who qualifies to get into Minerva will be offered a place regardless of their nationality or financial situation.  Admissions is based on academic performance, individual achievement, and potential for innovation and leadership.
