About the Dinner
Funds raised by this annual dinner support scholarships for highly qualified, ambitious student leaders to attend our transformational TFAS D.C. Summer Programs track on Business + Government Relations. This comprehensive program includes: courses on economics and government relations for transferable credit; guaranteed internships with government affairs offices of notable corporations, trade associations and lobbying firms in the D.C. area; and unparalleled access to networking and professional development opportunities including special guest lectures, site briefings, a mentorship program and more.
Even with remote learning and Zoom classes, the program did an amazing job creating an effective learning and communicative environment. If it wasn’t for the generous scholarship I received, I would not have been able to participate, and would have missed out on educational, networking, and professional experiences that I am honored to have been a part of.” – Luiza Biaggi, 2020 TFAS Business & Government Relations Student
85% of our exceptional students would be unable to attend our programs without your generosity. Thanks to sponsors and attendees like you, the dinner has raised $4.95 million in the past 20 years. Yet the need is growing. Help us say “yes” to more of our impressive applicants, regardless of their financial ability.
Sponsorship opportunities will be available soon. To learn how you can support future leaders, please contact TFAS Director of Corporate and Donor Relations Kathie Regan Russo at kathie@TFAS.org.
