The Fund for American Studies (TFAS) has organized international academic programs for more than 20 years. We provide a rigorous academic experience, foster dialogues across borders, and establish a global network of responsible future leaders.

TFAS Hong Kong is a unique program that brings together approximately 65 students from across Asia and the United States to explore fundamental issues related to political economy and government.  Through educational and cultural exchange participants will explore challenging ideas, form life-long friendships, and will greatly benefit their educational and professional development.

Our comprehensive package includes academic credit through George Mason University, housing, and a meal stipend. In addition to classes, participants have the opportunity to engage in social and cultural events and hear from accomplished guest lectures.

Students who complete TFAS Hong Kong graduate into a global network of more than 42,000 TFAS alumni. You can find TFAS alumni living and working in some of the world’s most exciting cities, including Washington DC, New York, London, Paris, Beirut, Hong Kong, Beijing, Buenos Aires, and Santiago, to name just a few.

Join us this summer and study in the vibrant and exciting city of Hong Kong! The summer 2020 program dates are July 3-25, 2020. You can read more about the program here.

“The lectures at TFAS Hong Kong were a burst of information, a true melting pot of ideas. [The professors] and the other guest lecturers had an inspiring passion for the topics covered. The students’ eagerness to share ideas and engage in intellectual discourse was very refreshing for me. Everyone’s positive energy towards teaching and learning has reinvigorated my personal interest in the academic field.  TFAS Hong Kong has exposed me to an environment of debates, analysis, critique and questions, something largely lacking in my local university. I hope to be able to bring some of this energy back to my classes, and even for my future undertakings.”
