If that title applies to you, then read on. Eisenhower Fellowships – an international leadership and exchange program for mid-career professionals – has a new partnership with the Chinese Ministry of Education. The Zhi-Xing China Eisenhower Fellowship is a four-week, fully funded professional and leadership development program for exceptional U.S. leaders, approximately 35-45 years old, who have a specific interest in China. The fellowship features intensive cultural immersion, group sessions with U.S. and Chinese experts and two weeks of individually designed travel and meetings in four to six Chinese cities around the country.
You don’t need previous experience with China – just an open and curious mind, plus a keen interest in meeting with professional peers to share knowledge and practice in your field of interest. Current fellows are exploring innovations in the Chinese education system, venture capital and entrepreneurship, media and community engagement, rural economic development and private-public partnerships around science and technology for commercialization.
This opportunity is not just a one-off and it’s not for the faint of heart. An Eisenhower Fellowship leads to lifelong membership in a family of more than 1,400 active Fellows all over the globe, representing nearly every profession and the public, private and nonprofit sectors. We expect our Fellows to use the new relationships and knowledge created to deepen their positive impact on the broader society. We are looking for people with the drive and ambition to better the world around them, who can take advantage of the Eisenhower network and leverage it for the greater good. Competitive candidates demonstrate a strong track record of leadership and accomplishment in their field, as well as the potential for future, broad-based impact and success.
