• the 2018 innovation program 1


SELECTION: In the fall of 2018, Eisenhower Fellowships will assemble a diverse group of international applicants, ages 32-45, from the innovation sector to participate in its unique seven-week program. EF’s innovators have a track record of applying original ideas and information in novel and creative ways to address global challenges and take advantage of opportunities presented by new technologies or systems.


Eisenhower Fellowships is looking for candidates whose life’s work and fellowship project focus on the following five areas where EF intends to make an impact:


  • The Future of Work
  • Education
  • Health/Life Sciences
  • Energy/Environment
  • Design, the field that ties together all these areas of innovation


Through their work in these priority sectors, the Fellows of the 2018 Fall Innovation Program will help EF advance its central mission: to make the world more peaceful, prosperous and just. Innovation Fellows are expected to develop and execute concrete projects to create positive and sustainable change across professional disciplines, national borders and regions. EF seeks candidates who have a demonstrated track record of leadership as doers and innovators, and who clearly articulate a concrete, realistic proposal for original programs, products and/or policies.
