ACHS and The Fund for American Studies (TFAS) are pleased to announce that one inducted student member of each of the ACHS societies will be awarded a merit-based $1000 scholarship for a TFAS Summer Institute or Capital Semester.

For more almost 50 years, The Fund for American Studies, in partnership with George Mason University, has been educating student leaders from across the nation and world. They offer summer and semester institutes that combine rigorous courses for academic credit with competitive internships, leadership development activities, and lectures led by prominent policy experts.

For years, honors students have been the best and brightest participants, as they are most capable of taking advantage of all aspects of the intense Institutes. These summer and semester programs are a great addition to the leadership development that students receive on their respective campuses.

Special scholarship consideration will be given to student members of ACHS societies. The scholarships will be awarded by TFAS on a competitive basis and will be applied toward each recipient's overall cost. No money will be paid directly to the scholarship recipients.

The TFAS programs ensure that students leave the nation's capital with solid practical training, leadership skills, and a unique networking experience that will give them the edge to succeed as future leaders. Students live in furnished apartments in the heart of the city and are enrolled as full-time students at George Mason University. 

The following institutes are available:
