Scholarship Opportunity
By James Wilson

DownsizeDC.org received the following announcement from National University...

National University of La Jolla, CA (www.nu.edu) has a limited number of scholarships available for three online, undergraduate courses that focus on free-market economics and the philosophical foundations of capitalism.  These scholarships are being funded by a grant from the Charles G. Koch Charitable Foundation.  The scholarships cover the full tuition for the courses plus the application fee to NU.  These courses can be taken from anywhere in the world, as long as one has access to the internet.  The courses incorporate live chat sessions in which the professor and students interact in a virtual classroom, much as they would in a traditional classroom.   The courses use books by Ayn Rand (The Virtue of Selishness and Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal) and the free-market economist George Reisman (Capitalism: A Treatise on Economics). The courses run for the next time in the summer and fall of 2012.  The three courses and more information on the web are here:

To apply for one or more of these scholarships, send your name, transcript from your high school or university, and an essay of no more than 750 words discussing why you believe you deserve a scholarship and your future education and career plans to Dr. Brian P. Simpson. Send them to bsimpson@nu.edu or 11255 North Torrey Pines Rd.; La Jolla, CA 92037.  Please indicate which course or courses for which you are applying for a scholarship. You can apply for one to three scholarships, depending on how many courses you are interested in taking.  Note that to receive the scholarship you will have to apply to National University and enroll in the course(s).  If you have questions, please contact Dr. Simpson at the email address above or 858-642-8431.
