Students For Liberty (SFL) is the largest pro-liberty student organization in the world, with students active in 117 countries. SFL educates, develops, and empowers students in their pursuit of becoming leaders promoting liberty.
The Prometheus Foundation has worked with its CEO, Dr. Wolf von Laer, and his executive team for several years and observed a sincere desire to learn about Ayn Rand’s ideas and her rational philosophy, Objectivism. For instance, Dr. von Laer has taken Dr. Peikoff’s course, The History of Philosophy—Founders of Western Philosophy, and he loved it. Other top executives are studying Ayn Rand’s books and attending courses on Objectivism.
We agree that student activists for liberty need a rational philosophic foundation to support political ideas. Based on this, Prometheus Foundation has made a grant of $2.3 million to establish a four-year fellowship program for the study of Ayn Rand’s philosophy.
