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
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.
We are looking for enthusiastic, out-going
individuals with a wide spectrum of personal strengths and
