At the Steamboat Institute, we are Defenders of Freedom and Advocates of Liberty. We are admirers of the bravery and rugged individualism that has made this country great. We are admirers of the greatness and wisdom that resides in every individual. We understand that this is a great nation because of its people, not because of its government.  Like Thomas Jefferson, we would rather be, “exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than those attending too small a degree of it.”

The Steamboat Institute is an educational organization recognized as tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code–and we are here to educate. We are here to help provide tools, information, and inspiration to those who hold dear the Founding Principles of the nation.

Recipients of this scholarship will have their costs covered to attend the Steamboat Institute’s 9th Annual Freedom Conference.  The scholarship will include entry to the conference as well as lodging and travel accommodations.
