Thank you for the many responses to the proposal for an Ayn Rand Scholarship program. We will be expanding the program to include fellowships.
I have received exciting and substantial responses to the proposal from individuals and organizations. Discussions are continuing. The next steps are:
- Establish a system to search for the brightest and best candidates worldwide.
- Establish an effective screening process as well as a process to monitor academic progress.
- Define and implement management of the program, which will involve connecting study partners, coaches, and mentors; establishing reading/study groups; and generally monitoring the effectiveness of the program.
This is a work in progress, and I will be refining it over the next few months. I’m hopeful that hundreds of bright, motivated, nascent intellectuals will become students of Objectivism. Some of them will become tomorrow’s intellectual leaders.
