Neutrino Nucleon Deep Inelastic Scattering (DIS) events in MINERvA provide a probe into the structure of nucleons within the nucleus that is different, due to the axial-vector component, than charged-lepton nucleon interactions. The MINERvA experiment is stationed in the Neutrinos from the Main Injector (NuMI) beam line at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. With the recent increase in average neutrino event energy to 9 GeV and the greatly increased intensity of the NuMI beam line, projected sensitivities for nuclear structure function analyses using MINERvA's suite of nuclear targets (C, CH, Fe and Pb) will be greatly increased. The projected reach and impact of these measurements will be discussed.
