Already thinking about your summer plans? Consider a FEE Summer Seminar!
FEE’s mission is to inspire, educate and connect future leaders with the economic, ethical and legal principles of a free society. One of the ways they do that is through their summer seminars.
This summer, FEE is hosting ten seminars in six locations across the country for high school and college-aged students. FEE’s high school seminars are open to rising ninth grade to newly-graduated high school seniors (14-18 years old), and FEE’s college seminars are open to students 18-24.
FEE seeks students who are interested in learning more about the world around them, who are curious about how economics impacts their daily lives, and who are motivated to understand decision-making processes.
Each seminar covers Economics, Political Science, and Character-Driven Leadership by discussing questions such as:
• What are the benefits of cooperating in society?
• Why do politicians, voters, and special interest groups act the way they do?
• Can a free society exist without citizens of high character?
With three days packed with lectures, discussions, and activities, students discover the answers for themselves and are able to network with fellow participants, faculty members, and FEE staff. They will leave the seminar not only with a greater understanding but also with connections and friendships across the country.
Here is what one of last year’s students had to say about her experience:
First hearing about FEE, I thought, ‘No way, never going to that!’ Afterwards though, my whole world has been changed. I now feel confident to apply what I have learned and begin freeing the world!
- Alexandra Hibbitt
The best part about FEE seminars is that they are provided at no charge to participants. Tuition, housing, and meals are all covered by generous donations, and there are a limited number of travel grants available. In addition, FEE seminars are located across the country in hopes of reaching as many students as possible.
Visit www.FEE.org/seminars for more information, including full schedules and the link to apply. Applications are open until March 31, but students are accepted on a rolling basis, so apply early!
