The tenth annual ASSC is taking shape. Of the nearly twenty accepted proposals, we have a student from Harvard who will rebut criticisms of Austrians and another from Tbilisi, Georgia who will discus free-market health care. With Tom Woods and Nikolay Gertchev as keynote speakers, the conference can’t help but be a sensation. Details follow:
Grove City College will host the tenth annual Austrian Student Scholars Conference, February 7-8, 2014. Open to undergraduates and graduate students in any academic discipline, the ASSC will bring together students from colleges and universities across the country and around the world to present their own research papers written in the tradition of the great Austrian School intellectuals such as Ludwig von Mises, F.A. Hayek, Murray Rothbard, and Hans Sennholz. Accepted papers will be presented in a regular conference format to an audience of students and faculty.
Cash prizes of $1,000, $750, and $500 will be awarded for the top three papers, respectively, as judged by a select panel of Grove City College faculty. Hotel accommodation will be provided to students who travel to the conference and limited stipends are available to cover travel expenses. Students should submit their proposals to present a paper to the director of the conference (firstname.lastname@example.org) by January 6. To be eligible for the cash prizes, finished papers should be submitted to the director by January 20.
