Eisenhower Fellowships
Philadelphia International Leadership Initiative

Eisenhower Fellowships is a Philadelphia-based non-profit organization that has fostered international understanding and professional exchange through the sharing of information, ideas, and perspectives among emerging leaders throughout the world for over 50 years. The program consists of emerging leaders from the US and abroad. In the US, Eisenhower Fellows are recruited from four areas, Philadelphia, St. Louis, Research Triangle North Carolina, and New England. The Philadelphia Initiative’s primary goal is to benefit the Philadelphia area economically, socially, and culturally by developing the skills and global perspectives of emerging leaders. Over the past decade, 32 emerging leaders from the Philadelphia region have had the unique opportunity to gain international perspectives, connect with foreign leaders in their professional fields, and discover innovative solutions to local policy issues. They continue to exchange ideas and build life-long relationships. For most of the Philadelphia Fellows, the Eisenhower experience is not only a professional journey abroad, but also a self-reflective voyage that allows time to examine who they are as emerging leaders while re-energizing and often re-focusing their personal and professional lives.
