FEE’s high school summer seminars are open to rising ninth grade to newly-graduated high school seniors (14-18 years old). 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.
This summer, FEE is offering 3 high school seminars. 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 do that!’ Afterwards though, my whole world has been changed. I now feel confident to apply what I have learned and begin freeing the world!”
The best part about FEE seminars is that they are provided at no cost to participants. Tuition, housing, and meals are all covered by generous donations, and we even have a limited number of travel grants available. In addition, FEE’s three high school 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!
Don’t have a high school student but know of one who would be interested in attending? You can refer them at www.FEE.org/refer. You will receive a $50 Amazon gift card for each student you refer who attends this summer (up to $300).
