Do You Want to be Part of Bringing Together the Academic and Policy Worlds?
Our Academic Research Seminars bridge the gap between the academic and policy worlds by connecting liberty-advancing scholars to policy research organizations. IHS Academic Research Seminars offer graduate students and faculty a unique opportunity to collaborate with public policy experts, and to discuss and shape their research on topics where the classical liberal perspective may be underrepresented.
Are You Planning To Attend Academic Conferences This Year?
Our seminars are often attached to academic conferences, spanning a wide range of disciplines, and are held all over the United States. Not only do our seminars provide a platform for collaboration and networking, but we also provide hotel and travel reimbursement that can offset the costs of attending your favorite academic conference.
Our Faculty Programs team is heavily invested in supporting academics through the advancement of their careers, and fostering opportunities where ideas can influence the political decision-making process.
