PERC is pleased to announce a co-sponsored program with Liberty Fund, Inc. for distinguished undergraduate students. PERC will provide a full scholarship to cover tuition, meals, lodging, and a stipend of $500 for each student's travel expenses. The colloquium is limited to 24 students and the application process is competitive.
The program is designed to introduce students to a property rights and market approach to environmental issues. An understanding of these approaches will be invaluable to anyone who cares about the environment; particularly those who will choose career paths that include environmental law, public policy, economics, and teaching environmental science.
A theoretical framework about liberty and markets will be presented. Experts in the field will then demonstrate applications.
This colloquium begins with an opening dinner on Monday evening and concludes with a closing dinner Friday evening. The daily schedule consists of two sessions each morning and two sessions each afternoon. The colloquium is a combination of lectures and Socratic style discussions of assigned readings of about 300 pages that address specific themes.
