Event Overview

THE PROGRAM: Young America's Foundation's signature program is now approaching its 41st year! The 41st Annual 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!

  • Learn critical techniques to strengthen your club’s presence on campus
  • Learn ways to promote conservative principles to your classmates
  • Network with like-minded peers from across the country
  • Gain access to invaluable resources you can use to stand up against the Left and advance freedom
  • Stay in a luxury room for 5 nights at the Renaissance Hotel, located in the heart of Washington, DC
  • Only two students per room

THE COST: The $500 fee is broken into two components, a $100 tuition fee and a $400 deposit. After attending the full program and following all conference guidelines your $400 deposit will be refunded by check on Saturday morning upon check out. The $100 fee is your final out of pocket cost to attend the program. Almost everything is included, such as your food (three meals per day), 5 nights in a luxury hotel (only two students per room), tuition, materials, and other related costs.  While many books may be provided, some are sold at the conference, so you may want extra spending money if you plan to purchase the speakers’ books to be signed.
