The Mises Institute, founded in 1982, teaches the scholarship of Austrian economics, freedom, and peace. The liberal intellectual tradition of Ludwig von Mises (1881-1973) and Murray N. Rothbard (1926-1995) guides us. Accordingly, we seek a profound and radical shift in the intellectual climate: away from statism and toward a private property order. We encourage critical historical research, and stand against political correctness. The Institute serves students, academics, business leaders, and anyone seeking better understanding of the Austrian school of economics and libertarian political theory.
Fellowships in Residence at the Mises Institute in Auburn, Alabama, are available to graduate or law students, ABDs and post-docs interested in scientific research in the Austrian school and libertarian political economy.
These fellowships offer a unique opportunity for full-time research and writing in a particular area of specialization under the guidance of Institute faculty. The program is targeted for students seeking careers as academic educators and researchers, though students interested in law, finance, and business are also encouraged to apply.
