Clemson Capitalism Institute announces Lyceum Scholars Program


CLEMSON — The Clemson Institute for the Study of Capitalism has announced the Lyceum Scholars Program, through which accepted freshman will receive an annual scholarship of $2,500 toward tuition, renewable for up to four years for a total of $10,000.

The program will begin during the fall semester of 2015.  Lyceum Scholars will become part of a close-knit community, gain one-on-one mentorship from faculty and acquire a unique educational experience through special courses on political theory, government and capitalism.

“This program is revolutionary because it is designed not only to build students’ intellectual skills, but also to build their moral character,” said Brad Thompson, executive director of the Institute for the Study of Capitalism and political science professor. “Guided by the Great Books, our students will examine the elements of liberty, free markets and the American founding. They will gain a deeper understanding of the ideas and institutions necessary to produce a prosperous, free society.”

Drawing inspiration from the Lyceum School founded by Aristotle, the Lyceum Scholars Program is America’s first and only university-based academic program dedicated to exploring the moral, political and economic foundations of a free society.
