Launched in 2006, the Aspen Wye Fellows is a group of Chesapeake Bay area residents who share the Aspen Institute's interest in global dialogue and who play a key role in sustaining the Institute's mission, expanding its programs, and ensuring its future.
With this new circle of Fellows, the Aspen Institute is hosting events that bring an international perspective to the surrounding Chesapeake Bay communities. We host:
- Lectures by international diplomats and policy experts,
- Panel discussions with public- and private-sector leaders
- Book talks by authors and academics
The Aspen Institute offers Aspen Wye Fellows an opportunity for intimate exchange and meaningful dialogue with some of the most stimulating thinkers of our time.

- Lectures, panels, and roundtable discussions with influential policymakers and corporate leaders at the Aspen Wye River campus
- Book talks and receptions with acclaimed authors at the Aspen Wye River campus and at the Aspen Institute headquarters in Washington, DC
