Aspen Wye Fellows

Join or Renew Membership

Members of the Aspen Wye Fellows participate in Aspen Institute programming on Maryland’s Eastern Shore and serve as advocates and ambassadors, upholding the Institute’s commitment to a free, just and equitable society. Wye Fellows share the Institute’s interest in encouraging civil dialogue with the most stimulating thinkers of our time to promote understanding and solutions to the most pressing issues of the day.

Wye Fellows enjoy intimate exchange with influential policymakers, corporate leaders and international diplomats at speaker events, panels and roundtable discussions on the Eastern Shore and at the Aspen Institute headquarters in Washington, DC, where Wye Fellows also attend book talks and luncheons with acclaimed authors and arts and culture events.

Few organizations have the convening power, credibility, impact and reach of the Aspen Institute. The Wye Fellows brings Aspen Institute programs to Chesapeake Bay area residents who seek opportunities for deeper understanding of the world we share today.
