Applications Open for Eisenhower Fellowships’ 2019 Global Program!

Deadline: 15 June 2018

Applications are now open for the Eisenhower Fellowships’ Global Program which seeks ambitious, disciplined rising leaders with the vision to make the world a better place as well as the ability to create and implement a concrete plan to make that vision a reality post-fellowship.

Fellows represent all professional sectors – private, public and nonprofit – and hail from any number of careers, from journalism to the military to higher education to private corporations to the theater and beyond.

What all Fellows share, regardless of their professional background or nationality, is a desire to make meaningful positive change in the world in collaboration with peers across sectors and borders. Successful candidates are eager to leverage the global network of Eisenhower Fellowships and engage, over their lifetime as an Eisenhower Fellow, in constructive projects and initiatives designed to enhance the values of Eisenhower Fellowships: peace, prosperity and justice.

Candidates are solicited through an open application process, and supported by EF’s 44 local country chapters in the vetting and selection of candidates. To ensure that the network and Fellow classes remain diverse and representative of countries, regions and professional sectors, EF opens up its global programs each spring and fall to a select group of countries in its network, while still allowing all interested country chapters with strong candidates to apply.

The country rotation schedule is based on a variety of factors, including size of the EF network and geopolitical importance of the country and/or region, among others.

 Eligibility Criteria

  • Candidates for a Global Eisenhower Fellowship must be non U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
  • Competitive applicants generally fall within the age range of approximately 32 to 45 years old, as this is a fellowship aimed at ascendant mid-career professionals, not students or full-time academics.
  • While we do consider candidates who are older or younger than this, the farther your age falls outside of this age range, the less competitive your application will be.
  • EF recruits its global candidates from more than 55 countries in Europe, Latin America, Asia, Oceania and Africa.

Applicants can apply via given website.
