I got accepted to American Institute on Political and Economic Systems (AIPES) which will be held in Prague this summer. I received a scholarship of $3000 and need $750 in order to fully cover all the expenses. am motivated to go to AIPES because it brings together approximately 100-110 students from North America, Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia to explore fundamental issues related to political philosophy, political economy, and conflict management. The objective of the institute is to provide a rigorous academic experience, foster dialogues that cross borders, and create a global network of responsible future leaders.The program includes academic credit through Charles University, one of Europe's oldest and most prestigious universities. I am a sophomore at LCC International University where I study International Relations and Development. I believe that this AIPES will be life-changing since it resonates so well with what I have done so far in my life and where I want to end up in future.
