Eisenhower Fellows from Africa

November 7, 2016

All twenty-four of the fall 2016 Eisenhower Fellows visited Harvard on the same day for a group session co-sponsored by the Marshal's Office and the Center for African Studies, followed by individual appointments across the university with faculty and affiliates. This was the first time in the Eisenhower Fellowships' 60+ years that the program hosted an entire cohort from Africa. Participants came from Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe. Fellows interacted with staff from the Marshal's Office and the Center for African Studies at a breakfast on November 7, which featured a welcome by the University Marshal and remarks by the Director of the Center.
