The institute, hosted by the Becker Friedman Institute for Economics at the University of Chicago, will be held virtually July 18–Aug. 6.

The inaugural cohort was chosen based on an interest in the study of economics and boasts an average 3.78 grade point average. In all, more than 200 students applied, and 45 were selected.
