Applications Now Available for Fulbright Teaching Fellowship in Greece

Fulbright/HAEF Teaching 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 the surrounding Greek community.

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

The program begins Sept. 1 and continues until July 15 of the following calendar year. There are two, 14-day vacation periods—one at Christmas and one during the Greek Orthodox Easter. Sporadic vacation days throughout the fellowship also include various Greek national and public holidays.

The Fellowship is open to graduating seniors and recent graduates with a record of academic excellence at both the undergraduate and graduate level. Majors in education and English literature and language (including TESOL/TEFL) are preferred but not required. Applicants 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. Applicants with past teaching, college counseling and/or admissions experience will be favored during the decision-making process.

HAEF pays a monthly stipend for the duration of the Fellowship and provides a comprehensive private healthcare package. Housing will be offered at the 45-acre Psychico Campus, a pleasant suburban setting overlooking Athens. Two off-campus apartments located nearby campus are also options for accommodation. Each fellow has a separate bedroom, but all share the bathrooms, kitchens and living rooms. All houses are equipped with wireless Internet and include a washer and dryer. Lunches are provided at the school during school days and fellows are reimbursed for a monthly mass-transit pass within Athens’ city limits.

Twelve fellowships are awarded annually to recent graduates from universities across the nation. For more information, visit or contact Kathy Caroki at
