The Soviet Empire raised a generation of Europeans in a culture of fear, intimidation, corruption, and authoritarianism.

The Fund for American Studies (TFAS), launched its first international program in 1993. This was to ensure that democratic values centered around individual liberty, free markets, and limited government replaced communism.
Since 1993, TFAS has hosted international programs in Asia, Europe and Latin America and has educated future leaders from all around the world.
They are truly transformational. Martyna Pawluk ’22 of Poland had this to say:
I was able to explore the American political and economic principles in an extraordinary international environment, and now I can think of ways to apply them within my home country.
As we celebrate our 30th anniversary of this world impacting program, we’ll hope you’ll help us by donating today!
