The Fund for American Studies has several full scholarships available for Estonian students to attend one of five summer institutes held in Washington, DC. Each program enables students to get a first-hand look at the American system of government by living, learning, and interning in Washington for eight weeks.

The following Institutes will be held from June 5 — August 3, 2013:

  • Engalitcheff Institute on Comparative Political and Economic Systems: For students interested in economics and government.
  • Institute on Economics and International Affairs: For students interested in international affairs and economics.
  • Institute on Political Journalism: For students interested in journalism or communications.
  • Institute on Business and Government Affairs: For students interested in how business influences government and the political process.
  • Institute on Philanthropy and Voluntary Service: For students interested in nongovernmental organizations or civil society.

Students live in the heart of Washington, DC and take two classes accredited by George Mason University, while interning for approximately 30 hours per week. Experts from the journalism, business, public policy and nonprofit sectors engage students in weekly dialogues held on campus and at locations such the World Bank and Capitol Hill.

Several full scholarships are available through the generous support of Louis DeJoy and his wife, former U.S. Ambassador to Estonia Aldona Wos. Scholarship funding includes tuition, housing and a travel stipend.

The $50 application fee will be waived for Estonian applicants.
