Eisenhower Fellowships (EF) engages ascendant leaders from around the world to enhance their professional capabilities, broaden and deepen their perspectives and enlist them in a global community of likeminded individuals united by their drive to make a positive impact in their societies. Eisenhower Fellows are outstanding leaders with a track record of achievement who are expected to assume positions of greater influence in their respective fields and countries.
In 2021 Eisenhower Fellowships will host a regional program focused on connecting and empowering outstanding midcareer African leaders ages 32–45 from diverse fields confronting the negative impact of climate change in Sub-Saharan Africa. They will recruit dynamic change agents primarily from Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Africa,
Tanzania and Zimbabwe and bring them to the United States for a unique personal and professional transformational experience.
- Open primarily to midcareer leaders from Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania and Zimbabwe;
- Exceptional leaders from other countries with a track record of working regionally also will be considered.
- Applicants should be between the ages of 32 to 45;
- EF seeks a diverse mix of applicants from a wide range of professional fields confronting the many destructive dimensions of climate change across the subcontinent. These include leaders in the fields of agriculture, public safety, environmental protection, finance, water and food security, energy and other sectors where climate change has negatively affected the quality of life across Sub-Saharan Africa.
Fellows are selected based on their track record of leadership, their potential for future impact and their commitment to lifelong engagement with Eisenhower Fellowships to advance EF’s mission of enhancing international understanding through dialogue to build a world more peaceful, prosperous and just.
A few months before the fellowship begins, Fellows are expected to devote significant time to research, preparation and planning in consultation with the EF program team, followed by several weeks of virtual introductory and orientation sessions.
