Louisville-area students in grades 11 and 12 (as of fall, 2018) are invited to apply for admission to the 2018 Economics & Entrepreneurship Summer Program.

There is no cost to attend. The John H. Schnatter Center for Free Enterprise will provide all classroom materials, meals, and transportation to off-site location(s).
