Beyond Washington: Understanding the Heartland
August 23, 2022

Beyond Washington is a one-week program for staff members of German members of the Bundestag from all parliamentary groups. The program provides an in-depth understanding of U.S. domestic policy and the resulting foreign policy to foster transatlantic relations. The exchange features high-level meetings with political, business, and civil society leaders to discuss knowledge of policy issues such as fiscal and budgetary policy, state and local politics, and current economic issues. Full scholarships are awarded for the program.

Beyond Washington is implemented by Cultural Vistas and funded by the U.S. Embassy Berlin and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy based on a resolution of the German Bundestag.
