Most students accepted to the Summer Honors Program will participate in an intensive one-week seminar, studying a particular area of public policy alongside an AEI scholar or partner instructor. Available subjects, scholars, and dates are described below. Students may apply for multiple courses and then rank their preferences, but will only be admitted for one. Admitted participants will receive a $250 stipend, as well as housing, most lunches and dinners during the week, and reimbursement for travel expenses.
Applicants may also choose to be considered for a prestigious five-week opportunity, called the Summer Honors Academy. Through this program, ten students will be chosen to participate in five different courses from May 27 – June 26, 2020. As a cohort, they will take a foundational course entitled “The Great Debate: The Roots of Right & Left” on May 28–29, and then they will participate in courses of their choosing during each of the following four weeks. Summer Honors Academy participants will receive a $1,250 stipend, as well as housing, most lunches and dinners during class days, and reimbursement for travel expenses.
