Since 1989, Eisenhower Fellowships has sent over 350 U.S. citizens and permanent residents abroad. The USA Fellowship provides proven mid-career leaders with a customized four- or five-week professional experience in one or two countries in the EF network, as well as lifetime membership in a global community of fellows. Fellows hail from all professional fields, and represent the private, public and nonprofit sectors.

On fellowship, USA Fellows meet with leaders in their fields who can help them achieve their program goals, including many international Eisenhower Fellows.  These interactions push Fellows to look beyond the day-to-day of their professional lives; to broaden and enhance their global perspective and partnerships; and to have a greater impact in their home region and professional sphere.
