Opportunities at AEI
This semester, we are offering three conferences at AEI: March 22-23, April 19-20, and May 10-11, 2013. While at AEI, students and professors hear from dozens of AEI scholars and several outside speakers and participate in discussions.
The Summer Institute brings together 25 select college undergraduates for a month-long, fully-funded experience debating ideas about liberty and free enterprise and learning the principles and methods of public policy analysis. Summer Institute students spend part of the summer working with and learning from AEI scholars and fellows. During the 2012 Summer Institute, students heard from Michael Barone, John Bolton, Karlyn Bowman, Arthur Brooks, Thomas Donnelly, Jonah Goldberg, Ken Green, Kevin Hassett, Steve Hayward, Bill Kristol, Charles Murray, Karl Rove, Sally Satel, Gary Schmitt, Sita Slavov, and Christina Hoff Sommers, and they had the opportunity to participate in a trip to Gettysburg, visit Capitol Hill and more. Watch this video review of the 2012 Summer Institute.

Intern Reception Series
During each intern season, fall, spring and summer, we host a reception for interns at AEI. Our Intern Reception Series brings together interns from area think tanks, Capitol Hill, and elsewhere to hear from scholars and learn more about AEI ideas and programs. To kick off the series, we hosted an event at AEI with Arthur Brooks as the keynote speaker. To learn about our next event, email Lori Sanders at email@example.com.
