Eligibility

To be eligible for enrolment in the LDP, you must:

  • Currently be enrolled as an undergraduate or postgraduate student (part-time or full-time) at a Western Australian university;
  • Hold either Australian citizenship or permanent residency*;
  • Be based in Western Australia.

*International students are unfortunately not eligible; in very rare circumstances, an exception may be made.  However, international students are very welcome to attend our seminars and events.

Above all, the Mannkal Economic Education Foundation values entrepreneurship and enthusiasm for a free and open society.  Students from across all faculties, departments and backgrounds are considered.  Course marks are one consideration, but this should not exclude students who have made contributions in other areas.  Aspects of the LDP benefit from a formal study of economics and public policy, but a keen interest and awareness of the philosophical concepts behind these subjects is more important.
