The Congressional Scholarship Awards Dinner (CSAD) raises scholarship funds for outstanding college students to attend the Institute on Business and Government Affairs (IBGA), an academic and internship program sponsored by The Fund for American Studies. The institute has become the premier training program for future leaders in business, government and politics. Through academic study, internships and panel discussions with leaders in the profession, students gain an appreciation for the essential interplay between business and government and its effect on our nation’s future.
Sponsorship and ticket information for the 2016 Congressional Scholarship Awards Dinner will be added soon. To learn more about sponsorship opportunities and benefits, please contact Mr. John Farley at 202-986-0384 or jfarley@TFAS.org.
The dinner is held annually in Washington, D.C. to honor two members of Congress and a leader from the business and government affairs community for their contributions to our nation and its young people. Proceeds from the dinner are used to fund scholarships, which are awarded to outstanding undergraduate students.
The event is a highlight of the summer for students, as it gives them the opportunity to meet senators, congressmen and leaders from the corporate community.
The Institute on Business and Government Affairs was established in 1990 by The Fund for American Studies (TFAS), a private nonprofit educational organization based in Washington, D.C.
