Spend a week with 30 undergraduates, recent graduates or graduate international students exploring liberal ideas, hearing lectures from top faculty, and discussing opinions, thoughts, and ideas all day and into the night.
Accepted applicants are awarded scholarships, covering the cost of the program, room and board on a college campus, and materials and books.
Hundreds of students have already been involved with the Institute for Economic Studies programs.
They usually describe it as a week which had a tremendous impact in their intellectual life and which has proved helpful for careers in academies, law, journalism, and other idea-oriented fields.
It is also a great experience from a personal point of view, since for a week, students and faculty members, coming from everywhere in the world, get to live together, to speak and to debate.
They get to learn from each other and are in contact with different cultures, education and ways of life.
Summer break makes it possible for the faculty members to come and lecture for us.
Most of them are very skilled and well-known professors from all over the world who believe in the ideas and in the goal of the Institute and who are taking some time to join us to provide some wonderful lectures of a very high quality.
It is a great opportunity for European students to experience the American way of teaching and for American students to meet with the European way of learning.
It is also a way to discover Western and Eastern Europe, even for the Europeans.
