FEE is partnering with the American Studies Institute at the National Leadership Forum for a week-long seminar at Harding University. Join FEE speakers Lawrence W. Reed, Jonathan Newman, and Adam MacLeod as well as an exclusive group of top students (grades 9 - 12) as they explore the economic and cultural principles that were the foundation of civilization in the US.

Through exciting lectures and fun activities (on an actual college campus) you'll become more equipped to preserve and confidently discuss the ideas upon which America was founded, including personal freedom, strong leadership, and excellent character. As Lawrence W. Reed has said, "If you want to live in a free society, you must assign top priority to raising the caliber of your character."

The cost for this week-long seminar is only $145, but the benefits last a lifetime (it will also look great on your resume and college applications). 

We are no longer accepting applications for this seminar. To receive updates about 2018 seminar applications, sign up below.
