THE FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM

Every year twelve Fellowships are awarded to recent graduates from universities in the United States.  The Fellows are chosen to act as young ambassadors, strengthening the ties between the Foundation and the United States, and providing a cross-cultural educational experience.  The role of the Fellows includes infusing their culture, enthusiasm, ideas, language and knowledge into our school community.  In a very real sense they serve as role models for our students.

Fellows are at the College for a full school day (Monday through Friday 8.30am – 4pm, with occasional Saturdays for specific events) and teach in supervised English classes and/or work in the HAEF University Applications and Counseling Office and the HAEF Library, and have the opportunity to interact with a wide range of students at the elementary, middle, or high school level.  Fellows are also involved as coaches and mentors in the Forensics Club – the College’s largest English language theater and debate club – where they are able to connect with the students in a fun, creative, and supportive setting.  At the end of the school year, Fellows take part in the English language Summer Camp in June-July.

Outside school hours, the Fellowship affords ample time and opportunity to explore Greece.  Past Fellows have complemented school responsibilities with travel and cultural exploration.

QUALIFICATIONS

We are looking for enthusiastic, out-going individuals with a wide spectrum of personal strengths and interests.  The Fellowship is open to graduating seniors and recent graduates (preferable age limit at the time of application is 26 due to the entry-level nature of the post) with a record of academic excellence at both the undergraduate and/or graduate level.  Majors in Education and English literature and language (including TESOL / TEFL) are preferred but not required. Applicants should be open-minded and adaptable to best enjoy the experience and challenges of living abroad.  They should be highly motivated, flexible, willing to work on a number of different projects at the same time, and possess a relatively active lifestyle.  Past endeavors should reflect a desire to work with children and teenagers, and some teaching experience and/or experience in college counseling and admissions will be favored.  Knowledge of Modern Greek is also helpful but not required.

FELLOWSHIP SCHEDULE AND BENEFITS

The fellowships begin on September 1 and ends on July 15 of the following calendar year.    There are two two-week vacation periods – one at Christmas and one during Greek Orthodox Easter, as well as any national and public holidays.

While at HAEF, Fellows are expected to attend a Modern Greek offered free of charge.

The program pays a monthly stipend for the duration of the Fellowship and provides a comprehensive private healthcare package.  It also provides housing on the 45-acre Psychico Campus, located in a pleasant suburban setting which overlooks Athens, as well as in two off-campus apartments located near by.  Each fellow has a separate bedroom but all share the bathrooms, kitchen and living room.  All houses are equipped with wireless internet and include a washer and dryer.
