Students: This summer, further your education on liberty and capitalism!

The Independent Institute is a leading liberty-promoting organization in the United States, and they host several excellent educational programs for college students each summer.  Although they don't finance all the costs, they do offer seriously reduced rates and scholarship opportunities.  Click here to learn about summer 2013 offernings.  And from an email they sent alerting me to this summer's programs:
A new poll shows that the new generation has more faith in government power than older Americans. They don’t remember the disaster of socialism and the tyranny of the U.S.S.R. They are increasingly bombarded with Big-Government propaganda. Indeed, few students have the opportunity to learn the basic ethical and economic principles of free societies. Yet they need these principles to understand the world and prepare themselves for it.  They need the inspirational vision of liberty and the intellectual ammo to share the message with their peers.
