What Past Scholarship Winners Say

“This conference has changed the way I think about the world around me. This is my first conference and will go down as one of my life-changing experiences.” —Lauren

“Every talk was intellectually exhilarating. I had a great time and made the most of it. I attended every talk (didn’t miss a single one), met amazing people, made great memories, and am leaving feeling very inspired and energized.” —Julian

“The integration of the presentations was fantastic! They all had a common thread. The very actionable lectures on taking ownership of your career and finances were extremely valuable to me.” —Celeste

“I wasn’t a big believer in the power of poetry or movies, but after Lisa VanDamme’s talk, I was blown away. I could not believe such poetry could have as much power as a full novel in some cases…. I realized that consuming art wasn’t a waste of time, detracting away from productive work, but fuel to work more productively.” —Chetan

“Ten minutes into Craig’s talk on Friday morning, I knew I was in for something amazing. All the speakers spoke at a level that was challenging yet very approachable and understandable for someone like me, someone pretty new to Objectivism. It was delightful!” —Leisa
