Well, I'd suggest going through Vanguard's university for understanding the types of funds and what some of the costs are and how funds work. As for a specific fund there are at least a couple of so-called "Young Investor" funds one from Stein Roe and I think one from Liberty but these are somewhat gimmicky funds in my view. Depending on the style of the minor, I'd say you could go looking at a few different types of funds and make sure the homework is done on how this fund works, what the taxes may look like, etc.
