Event Overview

Now in its 39th year, the National Conservative Student Conference will educate and inspire college students with the principles of individual freedom, a free-market economy, a strong national defense, and traditional values.

Students hear from policy leaders, authors, and activists who cover a broad array of topics —just blocks away from the National Mall and our National Monuments, and learn the best ways to stand up for and advance conservative ideas on campus just in time for the start of your fall semester!

The Benefits:

  • Improve your understanding of conservative ideas
  • Meet prominent conservative leaders and be inspired by their stories
  • Adopt techniques to improve your club’s reach on campus
  • Learn ways to promote conservative principles to your classmates
  • Meet like-minded friends from across the country
  • Receive invaluable resources you can use to stand up against the Left and advance freedom
  • And much more!

The Cost:  The tuition fee is only $195. This fee includes conference tuition, materials, meals, and 5 nights' lodging.  It's a phenomenal deal, especially considering that the actual cost for each student is more than $2,000.  Generous supporters of Young America's Foundation have made it possible for students to attend the event at such a subsidized rate.

After attending the National Conservative Student Conference, I feel more prepared to become an active conservative on my campus against the liberal majority.  The conference has increased my personal confidence and supplied me with the information I need to combat the ridiculous views of the Left.”  -L.
