FAIRFAX, VA -- The Institute for Humane Studies will award nearly one half million dollars to outstanding graduate and undergraduate students. The deadline to apply for a fellowship of up to $12,000 is December 31--just around the corner!
Humane Studies Fellowships are awarded by the Institute for Humane Studies to support the work of outstanding students interested in the "classical liberal" tradition.
The core principles of this tradition include the recognition of individual rights through the institution of private property, contract, and the rule of law, and through freely evolved intermediary institutions; and voluntarism in all human relations, including the unhampered market mechanism in economic affairs and the goals of free trade, free migration, and peace.

        ELIGIBILITY: Applications will be considered from those who:

(1) will be a full-time graduate student or undergraduate students
with junior or senior standing in the 1999/00 academic year,
(2) have a clearly demonstrated interest in the classical
liberal/libertarian tradition, and
(3) are interested in applying the principles of this tradition to
their work.

The Institute for Humane Studies is a non-profit educational foundation located at George Mason University, in Fairfax, Virginia. The Institute supports the achievement of a freer society by discovering and facilitating the development of talented, productive students, scholars, and other intellectuals who share a commitment to liberty and who demonstrate the potential to change significantly the current climate of opinion to one more congenial to the principles and practices of freedom.
