The Clemson Institute for the Study of Capitalism is pleased to announce its seventh annual summer conference for college students. We invite you to join us for an exciting three-day program of lectures, seminars, and discussions. Students will arrive on May 23th and depart on May 27th, with the main event running on May 24-26.
Students will participate in an intensive and exciting program exploring the moral foundations of capitalism and Ayn Rand’s novel Atlas Shrugged. Students will attend lectures, participate in small-group seminar-style discussions, and question and answer sessions. Outside of class, students can relax and socialize on Clemson’s campus and interact informally with faculty.
The Clemson Institute will be accepting qualified undergraduate and graduate students to participate in the summer program on full scholarships. All tuition, housing and meals will be provided on the campus of Clemson University. Admitted students will receive travel stipends of up to $400.
The Clemson Institute has assembled a faculty of leading scholars and teachers who study the moral foundations of capitalism, specializing in fields ranging from history and literature to philosophy, political science, and economics. Our faculty also join students for meals and interact with them outside of class for informal discussions and questions.
