This grant to Harvard University will support three consecutive summer school programs composed of 20 to 24 young professionals — Summer School: Expertise, Trust, and Public Policy. The program is aimed at training tech employees, policy professionals, journalists, and future academic analysts in the basics of how to understand and manage public technical controversies. In addition to training students, this three-year model will allow time for developing and perfecting materials and teaching techniques, which could then be disseminated to institutions that wish to internalize such training into their own programs of teaching or professional practice.

for a project on cybersecurity and using data for public good at the Berkman Klein Center
This grant to the Berkman Klein Center at Harvard University will support its ongoing engagement of top-level practitioners from the federal government, business, academia, and civil society with diverse perspectives on cyber surveillance and privacy issues in rethinking the role of the state in promoting cybersecurity. Building on its work from the past four years, the center will continue contributing to the field by (a) continuing to convene a diverse group of people to rethink the role of the foreign intelligence community in promoting cybersecurity and (b) continuing to develop a forum for state attorneys general to discuss law and technology issues.
for a community of practice to understand the systemic changes needed for deeper learning at scale
The Deeper Learning Dozen project is housed at the Harvard University Graduate School of Education. The project creates a community of practice formed by 12 superintendents and their team members, all of whom are committed to making the changes necessary so that all young people and adults equitably experience deeper learning. The work will result in an understanding of how to create the changes in systems, policies, practices, roles, beliefs, and assumptions that will lead to the impact at scale.
