Overview

Economic History for Leaders is a cross-curricular program designed for students with a passion for history, civics, or economics.

In the Economic History for Leaders (EHFL) program university professors and mentor teachers provide in-depth, engaging lectures and fun, hands-on activities to lay out the economic explanations of pivotal events in American history.  Students will also learn about the ‘economic way of thinking’, or how to use economic reasoning in their own life experiences.  In addition, experienced leadership staff lead interactive sessions that are designed to encourage, motivate, and teach student participants about themselves and their role in the wider world.

EHFL lessons allow students to ‘re-live’ history by taking an active role in the choices that individuals had to make during key events – rather than just reading or hearing about it. 

Program participants gain valuable opportunities to:

 - elevate their resume with distinctive experiences
 - practice leadership skills
 - receive advanced economics and history coursework
 - network for internships in Washington, D.C.
 - navigate dorm life
 - connect with future college friends
 - experience new situations that are invaluable for college application essay writing
 - enjoy a life-changing week at William and Mary
 - earn college credit

Scholarships are available.
