Welcome to International Programs
We bring two groups of outstanding mid-career Fellows to the U.S. annually for an intensive, individually designed program in the Fellows' professional fields. The Multi Nation Program (MNP) is the flagship EF program and dates back to 1954. At that time, Fellows came to the United States for almost a year. Today, the MNP provides intensive seven-week fellowship experiences each spring for individuals from approximately 22 countries.
In the fall, EF conducts one of several program options. Single Nation/Single Region Programs (SNP/SRP) provide fellowships for 20-22 Fellows representing a range of professions from a single country or region. These allow EF to take great strides toward a critical mass of Fellows who can collaborate in making an immediate and measurable impact within their country or region. First launched in 2007, the Common Interest Program (CIP) combines the stimulating geographic diversity of a Multi Nation Program with an intense focus on a common theme. To date, these programs have focused on diverse themes such as challenges of urbanization, energy and the environment, and women's leadership.
