Eisenhower Fellows are exceptional leaders in their countries, representing a diverse mix of private, public and NGO sectors.
Although diverse in background and interests, each of them has demonstrated leadership ability and a commitment to better their communities and advance their professional disciplines as a result of the fellowship
Eisenhower Fellows are mid-career professionals, typically 32 to 45 years old.
Although part of a cohort of approximately 25 people, each Fellow travels independently around the United States following an individualized itinerary, meeting with relevant experts, professionals and leaders to help them identify and take steps to implement concrete ways in which they can increase their impact once they return home.
The cohort is together at the beginning of the fellowship, at a midpoint retreat and at the end of the fellowship for organized activities and sessions.
Throughout the program, Eisenhower Fellowships’(EF) sponsors, Trustees and supporters also provide the Fellows with unique opportunities to further their fellowship objectives.
