Cato’s Fall Liberty Seminar is the premier student conference event of the year. Through political and philosophical discussions and forums with our scholars and staff, students with diverse backgrounds and education can develop further insight and understanding of the pillars of classical liberalism—individual liberty, limited government, free markets, and peace.

Topics range from foreign policy, criminal justice reform, and constitutional law to immigration, welfare, and healthcare. Our goal? To bring together outstanding students, young professionals, and faculty from around the world who share a commitment to liberty and learning—and to provide participants the opportunity to create new and enduring friendships and perspectives in our nation’s capital.

With generous support from Sponsors, we offer scholarships for approximately 25 students per seminar. Scholarships include the Fall Liberty Seminar, materials, three nights of accommodations, and scheduled meals. Accommodations will be available at the HI Washington DC Hostel. The hostel is within walking distance of the Cato Institute.
