The Eisenhower Institute embodies the 34th President's model of public policy formation and leadership with integrity. The Institute's initiatives include research, scholarship, education, outreach, recognition, and celebration.
The Institute's public policy programs have a strong history in our nation's capital. The Institute pursues a domestic and international policy agenda driven by the rigorous pursuit of facts, respectful dialogue among stakeholders, and a focus on the future. Policy themes are based on these objectives and coordinated by the Experts-in-Residence. Programming events include Washington round-tables, book events, lectures, public symposiums, and frequent outreach publications. Programs are offered on the Gettysburg College campus and in Washington, DC.
The Institute provides a variety of national scholarships and fellowships for recipients to engage in dialogue with noted public servants and to pursue a study of public policy. Since the founding of the Institute, it has provided in excess of $3 million to deserving students seeking to further their educational and professional experiences. The Institute also offers a semester-long internship program, giving them an opportunity to approach domestic and international policy-making in real time.
