  16. 16. 16 THE SCHOOLS PROGRAM Asilomar and the Education Fund — An Investment in the Future Thanks to your generous contributions to the Council’s Education Fund, the Schools Program is able to ensure that students and their teachers benefit from the same first-rate public programming that helps our members maintain a vital connection with the world around them. Scholarship recipients attend regular Council events and often get the opportunity to speak directly with our speakers. Recent scholarship recipi- ents have met with such influential figures as Ann Cooper, Executive Director of the Committee to Protect Journalists; Philippe Kirsch, President of the International Criminal Court; and Joseph Stiglitz, Nobel Prize winning economist. The Schools Program also presents students with the opportunity to spend a semester studying overseas through the Youth for Understanding program and to attend the Council’s Annual Conference at Asilomar. Thanks to you, over 4,450 students have attended Asilomar throughout the 58- year history of the conference. These students have gone on to careers in diplomacy, politics, business, and education. Many are now members of this Council and other Councils throughout the United States, and some have even gone on to serve as members of our staff and Board of Trustees. Nine years ago, the Schools Program began awarding Asilomar scholarships to teachers. Since then, over 140 educators have attended the Conference on scholarship, and an estimated 15,000 students per year benefit from their teachers’ participation in this rich professional development experience. This year, we have encouraged high school students and teachers to apply in teams in order to enhance the learning expe- rience. As a result, the majority of high school students at this year’s conference will be attending in the company of their teachers. The ten teachers and eighty students receiving scholarships to this year’s Conference will add unique per- spectives to the discussions taking place throughout the weekend. Listen for their questions during the ple- nary sessions and for their remarks in the workshops. We invite you to talk with them during receptions and meals—they are eager to learn from you. A perfect opportunity to speak with scholarship recipients will be presented at the Saturday luncheon for Education Fund donors and scholarship recipients. Donors and recipients will meet at specially marked tables in the Crocker Dining Room for lunch and conversation. In the course of this hour, new friendships will be forged, career advice will be given, and a lively discussion of Conference topics will take place. This year’s luncheon will also feature WorldQuest, a game designed to build global awareness and bring together groups of teachers, students, and community leaders—an experience not to be missed! It is not too late to donate to the Education Fund and take part in this special luncheon. You can make a contribution by dropping off your check at the Conference registration in the Administration Building. In return, we will place an apple sticker on your name badge, which signifies that you have joined a special group of Council donors who have made an investment in the future and in the world.
