The pro-Creationism organization, Discovery Institute pays for college students to attend a summer program on Intelligent Design.
Discovery Institute’s Center for Science & Culture announced today that we will be extending the deadline for applications for this year’s two intensive nine-day seminars on science, society and intelligent design for college and graduate students. The official deadline fell yesterday, April 15, but applications will still be accepted through Monday, April 22.
The seminars will run concurrently, July 12-20, 2013. The first study track, the CSC Seminar on Intelligent Design in the Natural Sciences, will prepare students to make research contributions advancing the growing science of intelligent design (ID). The second study track, the C.S. Lewis Fellows Program on Science and Society, will explore the growing impact of science on politics, economics, social policy, bioethics, theology, and the arts.
I would like to attend such an event and see what is taught. It sounds like a form of indoctrination since Intelligent Design is NOT natural and NOT science. So, that’s confusing…On purpose, I suspect.
I’d be interested to know if any other organizations pay the lodging, meals and travel costs for students. Here is more information. 2013 Summer Seminar on Intelligent Design In the natural sciences
Have a look at the requirements:
You must be currently enrolled in a college or university as a junior, senior, or graduate student. Required application materials include (1) a resume/cv, (2) a copy of your academic transcript, (3) a short statement of your interest in intelligent design and its perceived relationship to your career plans and field of study, and (4) either a letter of recommendation from a professor who knows your work and is friendly toward ID, or a phone interview with the seminar director.
They are trying to spread the word, and they have the funding to do it. I’m curious how many attend. Thanks to Jack Scanlan to pointing this out to me and his comment that he hopes they have extended the deadline because no one wants to come.
