Application Deadline: March 1st, 2022
In fall 2022, Eisenhower Fellowships will assemble a diverse group of visionaries from across the globe and invite them to the United States for a unique five-week program with both in-person and virtual components. Fellows will develop a project, foster professional relationships and launch dynamic, concrete collaborations with their American counterparts, their cohort and the prestigious EF network of over 2500 Fellows from 115 countries.
Fellows are selected based on their track record of leadership, their potential for future impact and their commitment to lifelong engagement with Eisenhower Fellowships to advance our mission of enhancing international understanding through dialogue to build a world more peaceful, prosperous and just.
The Fall Program brings to the U.S. approximately 20-25 leaders for a thematic program specifically tailored to a geographic region or professional interest. These Fellows follow individual virtual and in-person itineraries across the country, beginning and ending with multi-day opening and closing seminars with their cohorts that offer opportunities for intense interaction, reflections, project planning and personal bonding. These deeply shared experiences reinforce the program’s focus on fostering collaborations and forging a close network of like-minded leaders in countries facing common challenges. Recent examples are the 2020 Women’s Leadership Program and the 2016 Africa Program.
- Typically, Fellows range between 32 and 45 years of age at the time of fellowship and are highly proficient in English.
- EF seek Fellows who have the maturity to take advantage of the unique opportunity and represent Eisenhower Fellowships, as well as draw upon this experience to catapult them forward as impactful leaders for years to come.
Eisenhower Global Scholars typically will spend a full academic year of intensive postgraduate study and hands-on work experience, leading to the following degrees:
- Master in Public Policy from the Blavatnik School of Government at the University of Oxford in England, for students focused on public service and effective governance.
- Master in International Relations from the School of Global and Public Affairs at IE University, in Spain, for students focused on the global economy, innovation and entrepreneurship.
