Student Leaders Colloquium

The Student Leaders Colloquium is a 3-day, expense-paid, invitation-only event held at the Fraser Institute’s head office in Vancouver, BC. Fraser Institute policy staff and Senior Fellows will join students in sessions covering a wide array of complex public policy issues. Free, open, and thoughtful discussions are encouraged. Graduates of the program have gone on to hold executive-level roles in leading think tanks, business, and government.

If you or someone you know is looking to develop leadership skills, become more immersed in economics and policy, and broaden their network, this three-day immersive course is a great place to start. Apply by March 4, 2022, to be considered for this exclusive opportunity.

Please note: This opportunity is available for students studying in Canada from any academic discipline. Students are selected based on their ability to contribute to the discussion and their potential to be future leaders. In addition to those who are actively involved in campus, local, provincial, and federal politics, we choose students pursuing careers in journalism, law, entrepreneurship, commerce, and medicine, just to name a few. Preference is given to those who attend one of our student webinars
