US Rep. Thomas Massie speaks to a past Ron Paul Scholars Seminar.

Attention Upper Division Undergrads and Grad Students!

We realize that many of you are just getting the hang of summer and perhaps the last thing on your mind as it warms up is exercising your mind, but we have a great opportunity for you at the end of summer that you will want to apply for right now!

The Ron Paul Institute is pleased to announce its fourth Ron Paul Scholars Seminar. 

The Seminar will take place on September first at the Hilton Washington Dulles Airport in Herndon, Virginia 20171.

What is it?

The Ron Paul Scholars Seminar is a one-day, interactive foreign policy and civil liberties “boot camp,” with lectures from some of the most thoughtful pro-liberty/pro-peace professors and professors-of-practice. Past lecturers have included US Rep. Thomas Massie, former CIA officer Phil Giraldi, former US Diplomat and Senate Staff Member James Jatras, Future of Freedom Foundation founder Jacob Hornberger, bestselling author James Bovard, and many more. 

While the lectures are delivered by recognized academics, these are not dry sessions of theoretical material. There is plenty of give and take and Q&A involved. Most of all, as Dr. Paul always admonishes, they are a lot of fun and a great opportunity to meet and develop connections with like-minded peers.

RPI 2023 Scholars will also be invited to attend the Ron Paul Institute’s annual Washington DC conference the following day and will also be invited to mingle with conference speakers and Dr. Paul at the VIP post-conference reception.

Hang on…How Can I Afford This?

The Ron Paul Institute will book a hotel room (double occupancy) for Thursday and Friday night and will provide a $500 scholarship for each scholar to cover travel and related costs. Additional expenses may be considered on a case-by-case basis.

The Most Important Part…

Successful applicants will understand that this is a program demanding a high level of independence and self-reliance. Scholars are expected to make their own travel arrangements and act very quickly. Think of it as a “pop-up” internship.

Interested students are asked to fill out an application form and submit it by August 9th. Successful applicants will be notified by August 12th and will be expected to make travel plans very quickly.

Plan to arrive by Thursday afternoon on the 31st of August and to attend our pre-event dinner with a special speaker.

There are only ten available places in this year’s program, so interested students should waste no time applying.

Apply now!
