Media Release: AIMS on Campus Revival

The Atlantic Institute for Market Studies are pleased to announce the revival of the AIMS on Campus program, which has successfully operated as a platform of student engagement across Atlantic Canada for the past three years.

AIMS on Campus is a project that introduces ideas of free markets, liberty, and individual economic responsibility to post-secondary students across Canada. Canadian colleges and universities should be havens for intellectual freedom, where all students can express their ideas and benefit from their exchange. AIMS on Campus provides students with opportunities to network with some of Canada’s leading policy experts.

The Institute will send out a call for applications over the summer for both the AIMS on Campus student fellows program, as well as an op-ed contest. The student fellowship program is a competitive eight-month program that gives five talented students a chance to work at arm’s length with AIMS through the school year. The op-ed contest will be open to all Atlantic Canadian undergraduate students, and will include regional exposure and a cash prize for the winner. Students interested in either program are encouraged to join the AIMS on Campus mailing list.

AIMS on Campus encourages students to reach out to the program (contact information below) to find out more about upcoming events, debates, essay competitions, and more. Interested parties can follow the various social channels, and should visit www.aimsoncampus.com.

The Institute is also pleased to announce its appointment of Jackson Doughart as program coordinator. Building on the past success of the program, Doughart will work to connect students across Atlantic Canada with AIMS. In addition to other duties at the Institute, Doughart will have a presence on campuses around the region hosting events and outreach opportunities.

Doughart is a graduate of the political science program at Queens University, where he received a master’s degree concentrating in political theory. He has also studied at the University of Prince Edward Island and is editor of the Prince Arthur Herald. He has extensive experience as a researcher, writer, translator, and editor.
