The Eben Tisdale Fellowship offers students an opportunity to learn about high-tech public policy issues through a hands-on summer experience in Washington, D.C.  Each award provides a full scholarship of $7,995 to attend the Institute on Business and Government Affairs (IBGA) as well as a $1,000 stipend.  Tisdale Fellows will be placed with a high-tech company or association, take two classes at George Mason University, and live in furnished apartments on George Washington University’s downtown campus.  Fellows also attend weekly issues seminar lunches and periodic briefings at institutions such as the U.S. Department of State, World Bank, and Federal Reserve.
