This June, approximately 400 students arrived in Washington D.C. ready to jump into the experience of living, learning and interning in the nation’s capital.
Inside the TFAS classrooms, students are studying concepts of economics, ethics and political philosophy, led by professors from D.C.’s prominent colleges and universities. When not in class, students are gaining substantive professional experience through their internships, and attending the many professional development seminars, guest lectures and site briefings that the TFAS program provides.
In just the first few weeks, students have visited with Associate Justice Antonin Scalia at the U.S. Supreme Court, toured the National Mall and monuments, visited the Red Cross and National Press Club, volunteered during the annual Service Saturday project, and heard lectures from distinguished leaders including TFAS Grewcock Senior Scholar Donald Devine, Sen. Rand Paul and Larry Reed of the Foundation for Economic Education. Still to come this summer are briefings at the U.S. Department of State, the World Bank, Capitol Hill and the Federal Reserve – just to name a few. They will also tour famous D.C. sites such as George Washington’s Mount Vernon, the Newseum, the Smithsonian Museums and more.
