Undergraduate Fellows (2021-22)

The Eisenhower Institute Undergraduate Fellows program offers a select group of Gettysburg College students the chance to develop their leadership skills and grow in their knowledge and understanding of public policy. During the 2021-22 academic year, the Undergraduate Fellows' theme is U.S.-China Relations: Is a New Cold War Coming? Is It Already Here? Over the course of the year, the Fellows will explore the economic and political forces that unite the two countries as well as those forces that create dangerous frictions between them.

The program is led by Prof. Brendan Cushing-Daniels (bdaniels@gettysburg.edu). Current juniors who plan to be on campus both semesters their senior year are eligible to apply.

Fielding Fellows (2021-22)

The Fielding Fellows program provides a select group of Gettysburg College students with an immersive experience centered on the executive branch of the United States. The year-long fellowship focuses on separation of powers dynamics, constitutional law, and diplomacy. Each year, Fielding Fellows travel to a presidential library to conduct archival research, facilitate on-campus academic panels and debates, and work on an in-depth public policy project that traditionally culminates in a presentation to State Department officials at a U.S. embassy abroad.

The 2021-22 program will be led by Prof. Scott Boddery (sboddery@gettysburg.edu). Current juniors who plan to be on campus both semesters their senior year are eligible to apply.
