Society of Fellows

Members of the Society of Fellows (SOF) actively participate in Aspen Institute programming, serve as advocates and ambassadors, and uphold the Institute’s commitment to a free, just, and equitable society. Founded in 1964, SOF provides important unrestricted support that advances all facets of the Institute’s work. SOF members understand the importance of fostering leadership based on values, encouraging individuals to reflect on the ideals and ideas that define a good society, and promoting civil dialogue on the important issues of the day.

SOF members enjoy unparalleled access to Institute programs, including discussion receptions, luncheons, intimate dialogues, half-day forums, and multi-day symposia featuring experts on policy and current affairs. They are the first to know about Aspen Institute events, and they receive special invitations to member-exclusive programs in Aspen, New York, Washington, San Francisco, and other locations across the country.
From the annual Ideas Festival to its global leadership network, few organizations have the convening power, credibility, impact, and reach of the Aspen Institute. For the broadest exposure to its work and the deepest engagement with its people, join the Society of Fellows today.

Join the Fellows program to enjoy the intimate access and unique experiences that only the Aspen Institute can offer.
