International Programs


When TFAS was formed in 1967, one of its six founding objectives was to pursue opportunities for international programs that could plant the ideas of individual liberty in places that had historically provided the least fertile soil.

When the Berlin Wall fell in 1989, TFAS seized the opportunity and began providing scholarships to students from former Soviet Bloc nations to attend its programs in Washington, D.C. The number of students seeking these scholarships became so large that TFAS established its first international program in Prague in 1993. Today, TFAS has three international programs that help bring the principles of freedom to future leaders all over the world.
