FAQ

Who is eligible to participate?

Eisenhower Institute programs are open to Gettysburg College students from all majors and class years. Participants must be studying on campus for the duration of the program.

What is the time commitment for an Eisenhower Institute program?

These programs are non-credit, co-curricular opportunities that are designed to complement academic coursework. The time commitment is not the same as a class, but is also not negligible. Participants are expected to fully engage with the material to get as much out of the program as possible.

Specific workload and expectations vary by program. Please review the program schedules before applying.

How much do the programs cost?

There is no fee to participate in these programs.

The Eisenhower Institute pays for most costs, including meals and travel, although students may be responsible for individual personal expenses (travel snacks, passport fees, etc.). Additional financial assistance is available.

Can I apply for multiple programs?

You may apply for as many programs as you wish, but you can only participate in one program at a time. The exception is Foundations of Strategy and Leadership, which you can participate in alongside any other program.

Can I participate in different programs in the fall and spring semesters?

Yes! As long as you are only participating in one program each semester.

Is travel required?

Participants are required to complete all components of a program, including travel. EI recognizes that travel is an important part of our programs. Students who want to participate but cannot travel (domestically or internationally) will be addressed on a case-by-case basis.
