Join The Fund for American Studies as we celebrate our 46th Anniversary Annual Conference on June 20, 21 & 22, 2013. Meet with future leaders attending our summer programs. Travel to Charlottesville, Va. to explore the lives of two of our nation’s founding fathers – Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. Listen to a distinguished lineup of speakers, including British politician Daniel Hannan who famously criticized Prime Minister Gordon Brown's response to the global financial crisis. Additional conference highlights include: 

  • Dinner at The Willard, recognizing TFAS donors and scholarship recipients and honoring economist Walter Williams with the 2013 David R. Jones Lifetime Achievement Award. 
  • Breakfast at the National Press Club with students attending the Institute on Political Journalism for their annual awards breakfast. Fred Barnes and Steve Hayes of The Weekly Standard will present awards. 
  • Tour of the University of Virginia where professor Coy Barefoot, best-selling author and radio personality, will address attendees. 
  • Private tour of Monticello and dinner at Montalto, the “high mountain” rises 410 feet above Monticello and is historically important as Jefferson’s first land acquisition in 1771.
  • Visit to James Madison's Montpelier and the library where Madison outlined the framework of the Constitution of the United States.
