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.
