The Independent Institute, in

Essay Contest to Award $26,500 in Prize Money

 

The Independent Institute is pleased to announce the 2010 Sir John M. Templeton Fellowships Essay Contest. The Independent Institute, in cooperation with the John M. Templeton Foundation, will award a total of $26,500 in prize money to the contest winners.

 

The Templeton Fellowships Essay Contest is open to college students (undergrads and grad students) and untenured college teachers from around the world. All entrants must be under 36 years old on the May 3, 2010, contest deadline.

 

The essay topic for the 2010 contest pertains to a quotation from the French political economist Frederic Bastiat:

 

"Everyone wants to live at the expense of the state. They forget that the state wants to live at the expense of everyone." --Frederic Bastiat (1801-1850)

 

Assuming Bastiat is correct, what ideas or reforms could be developed to make people better aware that government wants to live at their expense?

 

Junior Faculty Division:

1st Prize: $10,000

2nd Prize: $7,500

3rd Prize: $4,000

 

Student Division:

3rd Prize: $1,000

 

In addition to the cash prizes, winners will receive assistance in getting their papers published and two-year subscriptions to The Independent Review. Selected winners will be given assistance to present their paper at a professional meeting or other public forum. The winners will be announced in October, 2010. (Winners of the 2009 Templeton Fellowships Essay Contest will be announced in October, 2009.)
