About the Program

The McLane Teammates Reading Program is a one semester, non-credit reading group where participants read and discuss selections from classic works and from contemporary scholars that address important questions in political economy. Participants that successfully complete the program receive a $1,000 scholarship.

The McLane Teammates Reading Programs at Texas Tech University and Angelo State University complement similar programs, which are operating concurrently at the O'Neil Center for Global Markets and Freedom at Southern Methodist University, the Baugh Center for Entrepreneurship & Free Enterprise at Baylor University, and the Arkansas Center for Research in Economics at the University of Central Arkansas.

All groups examine the same set of readings and interact with one another at a summit hosted each semester by Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX. 

Participants meet weekly for discussions facilitated by a Texas Tech University or Angelo State University faculty member, whose role is to pose questions and encourage participation from each member of the group.

All undergraduate students, who have a full-time enrollment status at Texas Tech University or Angelo State University, are eligible and encouraged to apply. 

Application information for the Fall 2021 McLane Teammates Reading Program will be posted on this page as soon as it becomes available.
