From the Chairman & President valued freedom, and defended it as they ought.” Today his words ring especially true. In the Arab world, people are rising up to overthrow brutal dictators. Here at home, citizens are rallying against government excesses and demanding a return to our founding principles.

Randal C. Teague Chairman


In 1771, American patriot Samuel Adams wrote: “The truth is, all might be free if they

For more than four decades, The Fund for American Studies has been teaching young leaders to understand what freedom is. Our students learn that a system of limited government coupled with a free-market economy is the only one consistent with fundamental moral principles. It is the only one that offers the promise for a free and prosperous future. Thanks to our generous supporters, more than 12,000 TFAS alumni share this appreciation for freedom, and they are making an impact in the thousands of communities

where they live. Our supporters realize that investing in the education of young people can truly make a difference and is among the most important causes they can support. Through the generosity of our supporters, the TFAS student enrollment and alumni base has increased dramatically in recent years. We have also been able to invest in continuing education for our alumni and tap the power of digital technology to reach more and more young leaders. Rest assured, we won’t be satisfied until every student who wants to learn about the principles of liberty has the opportunity to do so. Thanks for your continued support. Sincerely,

Randal C. Teague Chairman

U.S. INSTITUTES “TFAS is dedicated not only to the development of future leaders, but also to the understanding that in order for democracy to prevail, freedom must also.” Sean Heravi (ICPES 10) The Pennsylvania State University



The Fund for American Studies sponsors six institutes in the nation’s capital that teach college students and law students about States was founded. Each Institute offers students a comprehensive education that includes academic courses for credit, internships and professional development activities.

Students also take a course that explores the historical underpinnings of the Constitution. TEACHING FREEDOM SINCE 1967


When the Berlin Wall fell in 1989, The Fund for American Studies began providing scholarships to university students from Central and Eastern Europe to attend its programs based in Washington. The number of students seeking these scholarships became so large that TFAS established an international institute in Prague in 1993. TFAS has since added four other international institutes to help bring the principles of freedom to future leaders all over the world. American Institute on Political & Economic Systems (AIPES) Prague, Czech Republic • 2010: 109 students • 1,894 alumni With the collapse of communism, a tremendous need arose to reach young people from countries in the former Soviet Bloc with the ideas of a free society. AIPES offers students from Central and Eastern Europe as well as the United States the opportunity to study the principles of democracy and free markets.

European Journalism Institute (EJI) Prague, Czech Republic • 2010: 36 students • 258 alumni EJI offers young journalists throughout Europe and the United States training in the role of a free press in a free society and stresses the importance of ethical and accurate reporting in journalism.

TFAS is committed to improving the economic literacy of journalists. Summer and semester institutes reach over 150 students each year. Other initiatives include conferences, awards programs and outreach using social media. 6


Student Conferences In addition to summer and semester institutes, The Fund for American Studies aspiring journalists about the core values of honest reporting and provide rare networking opportunities. In 2010, IPJ hosted “Post-Election Reflection: Covering the Campaign of 2010” in Washington, D.C. The event brought together students from 46 colleges and universities, representing 25 states and three foreign countries.

Key Conference Speakers Charles Mahtesian, National Politics Editor at Politico Jon Decker, White House Correspondent for Reuters Television Jen Rae Hein, Communications Director for Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman Richard Benedetto, National Political Correspondent (ret.) for USA Today Kimberly Meltzer (IPJ 96), Assistant Professor at Georgetown University Tricia Miller (IPJ 05, EJI 10), Reporter for CQ Roll Call Jessica Taylor (IPJ 05), Reporter for Politico

Journalism Awards Each year, the Institute on Political Journalism presents professional and collegiate awards, honoring reporters whose work exemplifies accuracy, freemarket economic principles and professional investigative standards. Mollenhoff Award for Investigative Reporting Wendy Ruderman and Barbara Laker, Philadelphia Daily News, “Tainted Justice” The Ruderman and Laker series exposed a rogue squad of police narcotics officers that allegedly terrorized and stole cash and goods from store owners and brutalized innocent women. The team’s series led to an FBI investigation. Numerous reforms by Philadelphia police officials have been implemented as a result.

Award for Excellence in Economic Reporting Kathy Chu, USA TODAY, “The Credit Trap” Chu’s 11-part investigative series exposed the punitive fees and credit downgrades inflicted routinely on credit card and checking account holders by U.S. banks and credit unions. Chu’s story triggered legislation to curb bank overdraft excesses.

Robert Novak Collegiate Journalism Award Tom Corrigan, Stanford University’s The Stanford Review Corrigan’s winning investigative series dealt with the financial irregularities and credibility issues within student government and the questionable funding of The Stanford Daily student newspaper.



The best evidence of the value of TFAS is the accomplishments of its alumni. Our 12,485 alumni have attained positions of leadership in business, journalism, academia, philanthropy, public service and international affairs. TFAS alumni stay connected to each other and involved with the organization through our comprehensive alumni program. Alumni Council

TFAS Leadership Fellows

Forty-two alumni serve on this national board. The Alumni Council meets at least twice a year and offers advice and support for alumni activities, including the alumni awards program and chapter activities. The council is comprised of U.S. chapter presidents and at-large members.

This program leverages the impact of TFAS programs through young alumni who are committed to the ideals of free markets and limited government and who work in the public policy arena. The program is a yearlong educational fellowship comprised of networking events, academic discussions and professional development sessions.

Many also serve as internship supervisors for TFAS students. In 2010, 21 alumni provided internships or held small group meetings with students, 57 served as alumni roundtable discussion leaders and five served as guest speakers.

Mentoring Program In 2010, 81 alumni and 115 other professionals volunteered to serve as mentors to students attending TFAS internship programs in Washington, D.C.

Alumni Chapters

Alumni Ambassadors Helping recruit the next class of future leaders is one way that alumni give back. In 2010, 189 alumni volunteered to serve as references and to contact prospective students who were considering enrollment in a TFAS program.

Father and daughter alumni Kenneth (ICPES 70) and Kathryn (ICPES 10) Klatt toast to their family brick located on the patio of the Center for Teaching Freedom. Alumni who donated $350 received inscribed bricks, paving the entranceway to the new TFAS building.


ALUMNI NETWORK “We have all experienced how leadership and education are at the heart of TFAS. Though we have outgrown the ‘INTERN’ tenet of the motto, TFAS still provides us plenty of opportunities to ‘LIVE’ and ‘LEARN.’ ” 2010 TFAS Fellow Bryan Wood (IBGA 06) Rep. Robert Hurt (Va.)



FA C U LT Y & S TA F F Because our institutes are designed to influence and encourage future leaders, we market to college students across the political spectrum. This approach distinguishes us from some other organizations that are also working to educate young leaders. Many TFAS students have not yet shaped their political beliefs or have never been exposed to the ideas of liberty.

Since its founding, The Fund for American Studies has specialized in offering college courses that engage students in a rigorous examination of the values of a free society. It offers 21 accredited courses designed to examine the moral and intellectual case for free markets and limited constitutional government. To teach these courses, TFAS hires faculty whose philosophy is congruent with its mission. These teachers prompt students to examine their own beliefs, and they inspire students to study these ideas throughout their lifetimes.
