Apply for an EI Program

Applications for 2024-2025 fall and full-year experiential learning programs have closed.

Applications for 2025 spring and summer programs will open in November 2024.

Gettysburg College students are eligible to participate in Eisenhower Institute programs beginning their second semester of their first year. Some programs only accept certain class years; read each program description carefully to determine if you qualify. There is no fee for participating in Eisenhower Institute programs. Students are expected to be on-campus for the duration of the program they are participating in; virtual attendance is not an option. You are welcome to apply to more than one program during the application period; we will ask you to rank them in order of preference. 

Before You Apply

1. Students must attend an information/orientation session to apply for Eisenhower Institute programs if they are not currently participating in an EI program. Info sessions are offered during open application periods.

2. Read our FAQ, participation agreement, and application guide for key information and helpful advice.

3. Review the program description, schedule, and application before you apply. Experts create schedules months in advance. Students are responsible for attending all sessions, trips and activities.
