From our president

Dear Eisenhower Fellows and friends,

To underscore our commitment to engaging diverse, dynamic leaders in direct dialogue to drive positive impact in the world, Eisenhower Fellowships is proud to share with you our first public, data-driven report on the impact of our programs.

EF Impact 2022-2023 is based on two independent
external impact evaluations of Eisenhower Fellowships programs over the last four years and extensive internal surveys of all international and USA Fellows from 2016-2021. The resulting data was compiled independently by SocialSphere, a leading market research firm in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

We publish this report to mark the 130th anniversary of the birth of our namesake, President Dwight D. Eisenhower, and the new EF Day of Impact celebrated by Eisenhower Fellows around the world each October 14.

From everyone at Eisenhower Fellowships, we extend our profound gratitude to all our Fellows, supporters and friends for your leadership and your commitment to advancing our mission of enhancing international understanding to create a world more peaceful, prosperous and just.
