NEW FALL PROGRAMS
The Eisenhower Institute's 2023-24 fellowships and experiential learning programs include two new opportunities: Building America - Reinventing Education and Global Focus - Competing with China.
The Eisenhower Institute empowers young leaders to tackle society’s most challenging public policy issues in real-time. Our experts lead students into communities across the U.S. and abroad to see the impact of policy decisions, talk to people who are affected, create innovative solutions and urge decision makers to take action.
Why Public Policy?
Public policy affects everything we do: our work, health, safety – even the air we breathe. In a democratic society, citizens have the right to examine the laws, policies, practices and decisions that affect them, and to be involved in how policy is made. This is where our work begins.
Travel with a Middle East business leader. Test pollution with an environmentalist. Examine social change with a veteran journalist. Debate national security with a terror suspect’s attorney. Or study climate change with a renowned energy expert. These are the professionals who lead our programs.
Apply for funding to pursue post-graduate study on topics that address how government functions in a free society, citizen public service, public policy and world affairs.
High School Programs
Pitch a radical new idea at civic engagement camp. Join a team to debate current events in our high school invitational. Or win a six-figure Eisenhower Scholarship.
