The Aspen Congressional Program plays an important role in building bipartisan relationships in Congress and educating U.S. House and Senate members about foreign policy issues. Members of Congress regularly cite the Congressional Program as one of the best truly nonpartisan learning environments available to them and an excellent opportunity for cross-party dialogue. This renewal grant will allow Congressional Program participants to discuss ideas and analyze policies in a series of breakfast meetings on Capitol Hill and in three or four conferences outside the U.S. every year.

for support of the Urban District Leadership Network
The Urban District Leadership Network is a learning community that supports senior leaders from nationwide urban bellwether districts in improving student learning conditions and experiences through thoughtful transformation of complex district systems. The network promotes learning, inspiration, reflection, and collaboration around efforts such as encouraging systemic coherence and the reorientation of school systems to student needs, experiences, and identities. It invites system leaders and researchers into conversation to address the gap between research and practice. This grant supports convening superintendents and their chief officers as they work to execute and sustain a rich, modern vision for the success of today’s students that is grounded in research and informed by practice — and that sees learners in their full humanity and potential.
