Academy Scholarship Competition 2014
The Institute of Ideas Academy Scholarship Programme offers a small number of full time students (any academic discipline) attendance tickets for the three-day annual Academy weekend for only £60, which includes three nights accommodation, full board & an events programme! The Institute of Ideas Academy is a residential retreat running from Friday 18 July to Monday 21 July, in which you can be unashamedly esoteric and intellectual for a weekend. There are three parallel lecture series on Classics, Literature and History as well as a plenary History of Ideas series on moral thought. To be in with a chance to win the Academy Scholarship read on!
If the idea of grappling with the complexities of moral thought through the works of Aristotle and Thucydides, Edmund Burke and Aquinas, Cervantes and Thomas Mann appeals, then the Academy is for you! The event is a weekend of free thinking and discussion, in which everybody will have the opportunity to cultivate themselves in beautiful surroundings: with good books, good food and drink, and in good company.
To apply for an Academy Scholarship for 2014, you will need to submit a 500-word essay on the question: “Can one be moral in a secular society?” Additionally, a 300-word motivation on why you in particular deserve to attend The Academy is required. Applications must be submitted online by 11am on Monday 31 March. For further details on the Scholarship or on the event itself see the Institute of Ideas website.
