The purpose of the Rothbard Graduate Seminar is to provide an intense study of Misesian and Rothbardian economic analytics, along with the substantive conclusions of that research in related fields.

The core text is Economic Controversies, which each attendee will receive.

Welcoming remarks and discussions take place over dinner Sunday, June 7. Sessions begin Monday morning, June 8, and end Friday afternoon, June 12.

Attendance is limited to a small number of exceptional students who are pursuing graduate degrees in economics, history, philosophy, law, political science, and business disciplines and who seek a career in academia or research. Applicants must be current graduate students or provide a copy of graduate school acceptance for the fall.

Students wishing to apply to receive a scholarship to attend Rothbard Graduate Seminar 2015 should apply through the Mises Academy. Under Courses go to Applications, then to Rothbard Graduate Seminar Application. At this site each applicant must provide a copy of the following: student photo ID, Unofficial Academic Transcript, one letter of academic recommendation, and a writing sample. Students are also required to complete the Student Application questionnaire and agree to the terms of the Visiting Scholars Manual. Applications are due by May 4, 2015.

Scholarships include study materials, meals, dormitory accommodations with arrival Sunday, June 7 and departure Saturday, June 13. Students are responsible for the cost of transportation to Auburn (Most people fly into Atlanta airport, 100 miles north of Auburn).

The Mises Institute receives many more qualified applications than we have room to accommodate, so it is highly recommended that students submit applications as soon as possible.

A very limited number of Observer slots are available, with a registration fee of $1800 for Members, and $875 for full-time teachers and professors, which includes sessions and meals, but not accommodations. Dormitory information is forthcoming.  

Faculty request that Observers refrain from questions or comments during the sessions, but welcome discussion during meals and breaks. Please contact Patricia Barnett with questions.
