Harwood Graduate Colloquium Application

These four-day events are intended for graduate students and consist of a combination of interactive discussions and provocative lectures based on pre-assigned readings. Participants are given ample time to interact with each other and prominent scholars.

Our goal is to encourage promising graduate students to push the frontiers in their understanding of governance institutions, forge new research collaborations, and network with their peers and established scholars from this field.

Upon successful completion of the colloquium, participants are awarded an honorarium ($1000 for US & Canada / $1500 for others).

Meals and accommodations at AIER’s campus are provided.

Topics vary by year and may include: Alternative Governance, Monetary Policy, Economic Freedom, The Business Cycle, Economic Methodology, and Property Rights.
