The Poverty Cure Summit, an Acton Institute virtual event, provides an opportunity for participants to listen to scholars, human service providers, and practitioners address the most critical issues we face today which can either exacerbate or alleviate poverty.  These speakers will join panel discussions to discuss the legal, economic, social, and technological issues pertaining to both domestic (U.S.) and global poverty.  Rooted in foundational principles of anthropology, politics, natural law, and economics, participants will gain a deeper understanding of the root causes of poverty and identify practical means to reduce it and promote human flourishing.


We are excited to introduce an essay contest in coordination with our 2020 Poverty Cure Summit. Undergraduate students are invited to submit a 500-600 word essay for the chance to win up to $5,000. To be eligible, students must participate in a minimum of two sessions of the online Poverty Cure Summit taking place November 18-19, 2020.
