About the Film
The Minerva Institute for Research and Scholarship was established to support brilliant, deserving scholars everywhere. Despite dramatically reduced tuition costs to attend Minerva Schools, more than 80% of students in the graduating class of 2019 required some form of aid to attend. Minerva students come from Asia, Africa, Europe and the Americas. The student body is not only geographically diverse in origin, but their personal stories that have led them to Minerva are equally diverse. This is the story of three of these students.
