  • Eisenhower Fellows Program New Initiative for Sub-Saharan Africa

    Eisenhower Fellowships is a private, non-profit, non-partisan organization created in 1953 by a group of prominent American citizens to honor President Dwight D. Eisenhower for his contribution to humanity as a soldier, statesman, and world leader. It is extending its successful Eisenhower Fellows Program to a new initiative focused solely on sub-Saharan Africa. The initiative will assemble a group of younger (ages 32 - 45) Africa leaders from any field, and bring them to the United States for a carefully-constructed seven-week program. The goals are to develop the Fellows' leadership skills, to increase their international exposure, to foster life-long connections with their Fellow classmates, and to introduce them to an alumni network of more than 1,400 active leaders around the world. The deadline for submission is October 15, 2015. For more information, click here.
