With $26,500 in awards, the 2010 Sir John M. Templeton Fellowships essay contest is now accepting submissions, and we invite college students and junior faculty members to enter! And, the winners of the 2009 Sir John M. Templeton Fellowships will be announced in October.

In addition, I am writing about some special programs here at the Independent Institute that we hope will be of interest to students:

  1. Interested in the news media and advancing the ideas of liberty in public debate? The Independent Institute is currently seeking a Publicity Assistant, a full-time, paid, entry-level position at our headquarters in Oakland, Calif.

  2. Students are invited to explore the fascinating world of the ethical and economic principles of free markets and free societies at our Challenge of Liberty Summer Seminar, August 10-14, in Oakland, Calif. A blend of lectures, multi-media presentations, and class discussion, this highly popular seminar equips students with a fine-tuned understanding of the ideas of liberty and the world they will soon enter.

  3. Interested in learning how a leading think tank advances its mission of improving public policy? Students are encouraged to apply for the Independent Institute’s Internship Program and learn about Publicity, Marketing, Development, or Publishing/Information Technology.

  4. Want to stay tuned to the latest developments in on liberty in public policy and network with others?

    • Connect with the Independent Institute by becoming a Fan via Facebook, and please invite your friends, family, and associates to do likewise.

    • Follow the Independent Institute on Twitter.

  5. Please also join with us and post your comments on The Beacon, our fearless new blog dedicated to fostering bold and innovative public debate and appreciation for the ideas of individual liberty, market economies, personal responsibility, and the rule of law.

Memories of Slovakia

Embassy of the Slovak Republic in Washington, DC and the Friends of Slovakia are planning a special art exhibition at the Slovak Embassy in November to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Velvet Revolution and to recognize Slovak artists whose paintings are now in the United States. We hope you will participate.

The exhibition, Memories of Slovakia: Slovak Paintings in American Collections, will showcase works by established Slovak artists now owned privately by Slovak Americans and others with ties to Slovakia. The exhibition will run from November 7, 2009 to mid January 2010.

We invite you to participate in this event by lending up to three (3) works from your personal collection. The paintings – oil, watercolor, or mixed media – should be no larger than 1 m x 1 m (40” x 40”). Although the Embassy does not carry insurance coverage for its exhibits, security is excellent. You may, however, wish to check that your insurance covers your paintings while on loan as is the case with many homeowners’ policies. The Embassy will store, hang, and display the paintings. Participants are asked to deliver their selected works to the Slovak Embassy prior to October 15th.

Please submit one form for each painting, along with a color photograph, to Michal Pavuk at the Slovak Embassy (see address on the attached form). The deadline for receipt of submissions is August 28, 2009. A committee of Friends of Slovakia art experts will review all proposals to ensure both high quality and broad representation of Slovak artists. We also ask that all participants prepare a brief statement of the painting’s provenance, how it was acquired and what it means to the collector.

We hope all the exhibitors will join us here in Washington for the exhibit’s festive opening on November 7th. We will recognize your participation in the program and in person. And, we encourage you to talk with the guests about your entries.

Thank you very much for your support. We look forward to working with you on this important event commemorating the Velvet Revolution and the close ties of friendship and culture between the United States and Slovakia,


Peter Burian
Ambassador of the Slovak Republic to the U.S.A.
