Every year, about 45 – 50 Global Fellows are drawn across the world — from every profession and region — to participate in Eisenhower Fellowship Youth Leadership Network.

The programme involves participants travelling to the United States for a period of six weeks and getting exposure to cutting-edge innovative programmes that’d shape participants for their next quests.

These are done in two batches of initial 25 fellows from 25 different countries and another set of about 20 to 25 Fellows are selected to take part in the thematic programmes. 

The Eisenhower Fellowship Youth Leadership Network is an initiative tailored after the ideologies of Dwight Eisenhower to inspire world leaders of every nationality who would, in turn, challenge themselves to positively change the world around them through the expansion of their network and collaboration with other like-minded leaders.

In essence, the fellowship sets out to discover, identify, empower, inspire and bring together creative and innovative young leaders who desire to create a prosperous, peaceful and just world.
