FEE’s seminars give students the tools they need to apply economic thinking in their daily lives. For 2015, FEE presents 12 three-day seminars throughout the country, each of which explores different topics and dimensions of the freedom philosophy. Applications are open now through March 31, 2015, and participants are accepted on a rolling basis.

The FEE experience includes:

  • three days and three nights at one of seven exciting locations nationwide

  • presentations, discussions, debates, activities, and networking with fellow students and professionals

  • complimentary tuition, meals, and accommodations (limited travel expense grants also available upon application)

  • exploration of the positive social role of the entrepreneur, business ethics, and the key ideas of a free and civil society


Young Thinkers

FEE’s Young Thinkers series (for participants aged 14-17) features programs and topics especially valuable for high school students looking to develop a realistic worldview based on the freedom philosophy. Programs prepare participants for post-high school life and equip them with powerful mental tools useful in future work and study.

Young Professionals

Economic thinking is valuable in every profession and career path. FEE’s Young Professionals series (for participants aged 18-25) focuses on the needs of individuals preparing for or just beginning their careers. Programs feature an emphasis on practical application of the ideas of the freedom philosophy in the realms of entrepreneurship, business, and maintaining personal health.

Young Leaders

Developed for participants (aged 18-26 years) looking to influence their peers and communities, FEE’s Young Leaders program explores techniques and best practices for communicating the freedom philosophy effectively. Through project-based learning, participants hone listening, speaking, and creative skills while deepening their understanding of the ideas of the free society.


FEE strives to put valuable educational resources into the hands of students of all ages. That’s where Ambassadors come in. Ambassadors are FEE’s peer-to-peer distributors, equipping classrooms and clubs across the world with books, magazines, pamphlets, videos, and lessons that explore the freedom philosophy.
