The Eisenhower Global Scholars Program will send four outstanding American university graduates abroad for the 2020-2021 academic year to prestigious universities in Europe for intensive study and hands-on work experience in two major areas: 



Each Eisenhower Scholar will spend a full academic year of postgraduate study leading to a Master’s Degree at either the University of Oxford or IE University in Madrid. All courses are offered in English.
During their academic year of study, or after the school year is completed, the Scholars will travel for two weeks to a few cities in Europe to meet with Eisenhower Fellows. Eisenhower Scholars will experience the lifelong connection to a network of like-minded leaders. The Scholars will be offered optional summer internships in collaboration with the EF Global Network.

Preferred candidates will be between 20 and 30 years old and will have:

  • a track record of achievement, including a strong academic undergraduate record                                                 and community involvement
  • demonstrated leadership potential
  • a concrete project proposal that this international post-graduate study will advance
