Scholarship Description: Showcase your ideas on public policy and the role of markets by entering essay competition. New prize amount for 2014 is $9,000. The topic of essay is “The rise of crony capitalism: how government and business gain at the taxpayers’ expense”. Crony capitalism occurs when government and businesses collude to create advantages for some at the expense of others. It distorts market competition and can promote reckless behavior, leading to power and money shifts, and creates unequal opportunities for those involved. Crony capitalism can take several forms, including taxes, tariffs, subsidies, price controls, regulations, and bailouts. Society pays the economic and socials costs of cronyism. These costs include corruption, reduced competition, less business and job opportunities, inflated prices, and a general decrease in economic activity.

What does it cover? Prizes will be awarded in three separate categories:

High School, 1st Prize: $1,500, 2nd Prize: $1,000 and 3rd Prize: $500

Undergraduate: 1st Prize: $1,500, 2nd Prize: $1,000 and 3rd Prize: $500

Graduate: 1st Prize: $1,500, 2nd Prize: $1,000 and 3rd Prize: $500

Winning essays may be published in Fraser Institute journals. All entries become the property of the Fraser Institute. In addition to receiving cash prizes, winners may be published in Canadian Student Review once they have gone through the peer review process.

Selection Criteria: Entries will be judged on originality, clear expression of ideas, and understanding of competitive markets.
