WASHINGTON, D.C. — Each year, the Aspen Institute Congressional Program brings together Senators and Members of the House of Representatives from both parties to discuss complex topics and explore policy alternatives in relaxed, off-the-record conversations. The Program holds four conferences and study tours each year, along with a series of bi-monthly breakfasts held in the Capitol Building. The conferences and study tours provide an environment where participants can learn together from experts and talk candidly about important issues. Over the next three years, the focus topics will be energy, U.S.-China relations, the Islamic World, international development, and educational reform.
The MacArthur Foundation awarded Aspen Institute Congressional Program $1,800,000 between 2003 and 2013.
