Eisenhower Fellowships Welcomes 24 Global Fellows to the United States

  • 2019 global fellows

Twenty-four exceptional mid-career professionals from government, business and civil society have been selected for Eisenhower Fellowships (EF) 2019 Global Program.

 

These ascendant leaders from 24 countries in Asia, Africa, Europe, Latin America and the South Pacific will embark on a six-week fellowship in the United States from March 28 to May 10, engaging in a transformative exchange of knowledge and ideas with the leading minds in their fields.

 

The 2019 Global Fellows are thought leaders in education, health, entrepreneurship, biomedical research, counter-terrorism, health technology, communications and the environment.

 

“These dynamic young leaders join a network of Eisenhower Fellows who for more than six decades have been building bridges and working creatively to better the world around them, one leader at a time,” said Eisenhower Fellowships Chairman, former Secretary of Defense Robert M. Gates.

 

Eisenhower Fellowships inspires leaders around the world to challenge themselves, envision how they can effect positive change, engage others and collaborate with like-minded leaders across borders and cultures. Global Fellows travel across the United States to meet with top experts in their fields, then return home to apply what they have learned to address challenges in their home countries.

 

 “We look forward to welcoming these dynamic change agents to the United States for a transformative experience that will help them grow professionally and personally, broaden their perspectives and develop their leadership skills,” said EF President George de Lama.
