Students participate in three core seminars: The Evolution of Property Rights, Sound Money, and Scientific Procedures of Inquiry. In addition, visiting scholars present lectures on a variety of economic topics. During their two-week residence, students receive room and board plus a stipend. Those who successfully complete the program are invited to apply for the E.C. Harwood Fellowship, an award that provides financial assistance for the following academic year.
