Renewing Elite Universities. Forming Tomorrow's Leaders.

Who We Are

The Foundation for Excellence in Higher Education (FEHE) strengthens elite universities and forms the next generation of leaders in academia, law, politics, medicine, and business by providing funding and guidance to a network of pre-selected programs at some of the most prestigious institutions in the world.

FEHE's Network

We target the institution that shapes culture: the elite university. Our network includes 28 programs and institutes at 14 elite universities in the United States and the United Kingdom. To achieve enduring impact on campus and beyond, we fund and advise multi-year initiatives with our campus partners.

Summer Seminars

Each year, our network hosts a wide range of summer seminars for high school students, undergraduates, graduate students, and young professionals. The seminars provide unique opportunities for intellectual friendship, free inquiry, interdisciplinary study, and truth-seeking.
