The Public Choice Outreach Conference is a compact lecture series designed for students planning careers in academia, journalism, law, or public policy. Past attendees have included many future notables such as economists Thomas Nechyba and Paul Zak, political scientist Daniel Drezner and law professor Sasha Volokh. Graduate students and advanced undergraduates are eligible to apply. Students majoring in economics, history, international studies, law, philosophy, political science, psychology, public administration, religious studies, and sociology have attended past conferences. Any advanced degree student with a demonstrated interest in political economy is invited to apply. Applicants unfamiliar with Public Choice and students from outside of George Mason University are especially encouraged.I had an awful lot of fun sitting in on this one as a grad student more than a decade ago now; it would be even more fun for somebody who hasn't already taken courses in public choice.
For those of you interested in public choice and living in New Zealand, take my undergraduate public choice class at Canterbury in the second semester instead!
