Dinner Committee Dinner Sponsors About the 2013 Recipients
2009 Congressional Scholarship Award recipient Sen. Jon Kyl of Arizona meets with IBGA students.
IBGA alumni attend the 2009 Congressional Scholarship Awards Dinner.
The Institute on Business and Government Affairs (IBGA) was established in 1990. It was originally named in honor of Bryce Harlow, a man who exemplified integrity throughout his career as one of Washington's first corporate government affairs representatives. Students attending the Institute are inspired by his example to make a difference in the world. The institute is run by The Fund for American Studies, a private nonprofit educational organization based in Washington, D.C.
IBGA has become the premier training program for future leaders in business, government and politics. Through academic study, internships in corporate governmental affairs offices and trade associations, and in 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.
As part of the Institute experience, students attend the Congressional Scholarship Awards Dinner.
