You can help train academic leaders who shape policy with better economic ideas.

You see all around us how economic ideas have consequences—both good and bad. Bad economic ideas can lead to policy decisions that have unnecessary human costs. Future generations of Americans will be worse off in every way if such ideas continue to spread.

The Mercatus Center at George Mason University offers something better: top quality academic scholarship grounded in market-oriented ideas and approaches that enable people to flourish.

Give and we can expand our training to five promising academic leaders.

For the past 40 years, Mercatus training programs have launched the careers of more than a thousand academic leaders, who are dedicated to advancing better economic thinking in positions across business, government, and higher education.

But despite the growth in our academic programs, we turn away highly-qualified applicants each year. Your gift is vital to expanding our training next year.

Make your contribution today and help us offer scholarships to five new promising students before December 31st
