Based at the Aspen Institute: "The Henry Crown Fellowship Program, established in 1997, seeks to develop our next generation of community-spirited leaders, providing them with the tools necessary to meet the challenges of corporate and civic leadership in the 21st century.

"The program is a unique mix of intellectual and personal development seminars designed to broaden the perspectives of the participants and hone their skills in values-based leadership. It honors the memory of Chicago industrialist Henry Crown (1896-1990), whose legendary career was marked by a lifelong commitment to honor, integrity, industry and philanthropy...

"Each class of approximately 20 Henry Crown Fellows is chosen from a wide pool of young and accomplished entrepreneurial leaders (between the ages of 25 and 45). These Fellows have already achieved considerable success in the private or public sector and are at an inflection point in their lives or careers—looking toward the broader role they might take on in their communities or globally.

"The two-year program comprises a structured series of four seminars (approximately 25 days) under the guidance of skilled senior moderators of the Aspen Institute along with a required leadership project of each Fellow’s own design and choosing." [1]
