Eisenhower Fellowship United States


In 1953, to celebrate President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s first birthday in the White House, a group of businessmen founded an international leader exchange program to honor his devotion to world peace. Each year's program now included at least two seminars where fellows met and shared experiences. EF continued to measure the impact of its first decade on Eisenhower fellows around the world.
