Ted Stevens Foundation Projects

The Foundation will recognize, honor and perpetuate Senator Stevens’ lifetime commitment to Alaska through programs, activities, and education.


Papers Project

The Ted Stevens Papers Collection documents the career of Theodore Fulton (Ted) Stevens (1923-2010), Senator from the State of Alaska from 1968-2009, the longest-serving Republican member of the United States Congress. Stevens was a leading force in the creation of legislation concerning Alaska’s economic, social and cultural development.


Ted Stevens Statue

On February 23, 2019, the Ted Stevens Foundation proudly unveiled the bronze statue of the Senator at the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport. It had long been a dream of the Foundation to add a physical representation of the Senator and his legacy to the airport to greet and educate visitors to our great state.


Senate Leadership Portrait

In 2017, the board of the Ted Stevens Foundation, in keeping with the Foundation’s mission to “recognize and honor the Senator’s career in public service”, approved the commissioning of a portrait of Senator Stevens for inclusion in the Senate Leadership Portrait Collection.


Legislative Internship Program

The Ted Stevens Legislative Internship Program is the new name for the longstanding University of Alaska legislative internship program that has been allowing college students the ability to intern in the Alaska State Capitol as well as the congressional offices of Alaska’s senators and representative for over 30 years.


Ted Stevens Day

In 2011, the Alaska State Legislature dedicated the fourth Saturday in July as Ted Stevens Day as a tribute to the Senator’s many contributions to our state. The Foundation, in keeping with the Senator’s mantra to “Get Out and Play,” organizes statewide events on Ted Stevens Day to provide opportunities for Alaskans to enjoy the outdoors in honor of Senator Stevens.
