The Fund for American Studies (TFAS) sponsors seven institutes for undergraduate students and one for law students in Washington, D.C.
These Institutes prepare young people for leadership in the life of their communities and the nation by providing them with opportunities in the nation’s capital for enlightenment and enrichment.
The institutes are intense, combining lectures, coursework, internships, evening lectures and site briefings at key institutions of national government. Each institute offers courses for academic credit. Through the internships, students gain practical experience that prepares them for their careers.
