12 Fulbright/HAEF Teaching Fellowships


Knowledge of Modern Greek is helpful,  but is not required.

Grant period:

The fellowships begin on September 1 and end on July 15 of the following calendar year. 

Nature of assignment:

Each year, twelve Fellowships are awarded to recent graduates to act as young ambassadors, strengthening the ties between the Hellenic American Educational Foundation (HAEF) 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 school’s community. In a very real sense,  they serve as role models for HAEF students.

Fellows are at the College for a full school day (Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m.–4:00 p.m.), with the occasional Saturday for specific events. Fellows 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.

Candidate profile:

HAEF encourages enthusiastic, outgoing individuals with a wide spectrum of personal strengths and interests to apply.  The Fellowship is open to graduating seniors and recent graduates (the preferred 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 levels.  Majors in Education and English literature and language (including TESOL/ TEFL) are preferred, but are not required. Applicants should be open-minded and adaptable to  enjoy the experience and challenges of living abroad best.  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 experience should reflect a desire to work with children and teenagers. Some teaching experience and/or experience in college counseling and admissions will be favored. 


The HAEF reserves the right to interview finalists for the Fulbright/HAEF Teaching Fellowships via Skype or telephone.


HAEF pays a monthly stipend for the duration of the Fellowship and provides a comprehensive private healthcare package.  Housing is provided on the 45-acre Psychico Campus, located in a pleasant suburban setting overlooking Athens, as well as in two off-campus apartments located near-by.  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 the Athens city limits. 

While at HAEF, Fellows are also expected to attend a Modern Greek language course which will be offered free of charge.
