“Because of my Fellowship”

To celebrate 60 years of the Eisenhower Fellowship, alumni from across the programme are telling their stories of what Eisenhower has meant to them. You can read their stories on the Eisenhower website.

There is considerable European interest, with stories from Spanish, Turkish and Yugoslav/Slovenian fellows featured, plus a US fellow that visited Ireland. More stories will appear over this 60th year.
