Bastiat Scholarship Application

The Bastiat Scholarship application is now closed.

Cato seeks to identify and educate the future minds of the liberty movement. To do so, we have generous support from Sponsors to offer scholarships to Cato University, which include the registration fee, meals, lodging at the event hotel, and all books and materials. This does not include individual travel costs to and from the seminar.

If you are interested in the ideas of liberty, want to spend time developing them with some of the most well-known liberty scholars, and are looking for an experience you’ll never forget, submit your application today.
