For over 50 years, FEE has educated over 10,000 college students on the economic, ethical and legal principles of a free society at our Summer Seminars. This year they will be better than ever!
Who should apply? We are looking for students 18-24 who are intellectually curious about free market economics and the ethical and legal principles of a free society. You do not have to be a libertarian to apply; we encourage people of all ideological backgrounds (it makes the discussions much more interesting). All we ask from you is that you are open to new ideas, respectful, and prepared to engage in the lectures and activities. Our seminars are designed for people new to these ideas, so don’t worry if you don’t know anything about economics!
Why should you apply? Our seminars provide high quality education on topics and ideas that you won’t hear in most universities. We bring in some of the top minds in these ideas and some of the brightest students in the world for 3 days of lectures, discussions, and activities that will challenge your ideas, introduce you to new people, and leave you with an experience you will never forget.
And did we mention that you don’t have to pay a thing for tuition, housing, or meals? All you have to do is get to the seminar, and we will take care of you while you are there.
Applications for next summer open January 1, 2014.
