 2018 EFL Scholarship Opportunity for a St. Francis Prep student

We’ve just heard that we can again offer a full scholarship ($1700 to cover tuition, as well as travel costs) to another EFL or EHFL (Economic History for Leaders) program this year, and I wanted to let you know as soon as possible.  The student should be either a currents sophomore or junior.

 

This year, our EFL and EHFL sites and dates are as follows:

 

ECONOMICS FOR LEADERS (EFL)   

June 18  - 24                                     Rice University                                                                Houston, TX                                      

June 18 – 24                                      Yale University 1                                                             New Haven, CT

June 25 – July 1                                 UCLA                                                                                 Los Angeles, CA  

June 25 – July 1                                 University of California - Berkeley 1                             Berkeley, CA        

June 25 – July 1                                 Yale University 2                                                             New Haven, CT                  

July 2 – 8                                            University of California - Berkeley 2                             Berkeley, CA

July 2 – 8                                            Oberlin College                                                                Oberlin, OH                                       

July 9 – 15                                          Wake Forest University                                                  Winston-Salem, NC                             

July 16 – 22                                       Cornell University                                                           Ithaca, NY                           

July 23 – 29                                       Brown University                                                            Providence, RI     

July 30 – Aug. 5                                 University of California – Santa Barbara                      Santa Barbara, CA              

July 30 – Aug. 5                                 University of Washington                                              Seattle, WA

Aug. 6 – 12                                        University of Michigan                                                   Ann Arbor, MI                   

                             

ECONOMIC HISTORY FOR LEADERS (EHFL)

July 9 – 15                                          Tufts University                                                               Boston, MA

July 23 – 29                                       Washington University                                                  St. Louis, MO      

 

The EHFL programs focus more on American history, and how economic forces contributed to pivotal events in U.S. history.  It is definitely a unique look at how economics can affect real-world outcomes, and also provides sessions on leadership thinking.

 

The scholarship funds are intended to fully cover the cost (program registration, meals, housing, and travel to and from the site) of attending EFL, or our newer program, EHFL.  The student application, site and date information, and details can be found on our website at:  https://www.fte.org/students/economics-for-leaders-program/.  The student should be either a current sophomore or junior to be eligible to attend this summer.  The ideal scholarship candidate should be someone who has a strong academic record, has the potential to apply themselves and become (or already is) a rising leader, and who might not otherwise be able to attend a program like this on their own.  The EFL and EHFL programs offer students an opportunity to learn about themselves and their place in the world by teaching introductory economic reasoning skills that can be applied to decision-making, as well as developing their leadership skills.  We are accepting applications on a rolling basis through March 15, but the sooner they apply, the better, as spots are filling quickly.
