Athens College is proud to host the largest Fulbright Fellowship Program in Greece.  Each year, young Americans, recent graduates from universities in the United States who have been awarded a place in the Fulbright English Teaching Assistants program, come to our School to acquire teaching experience.

Fellows interact with our students by assisting, coaching and mentoring them during English lessons, in the Library, as well as in other English language programs and activities offered by our School, such as Forensics, the Delta Oratory Competition, Clubs, student publications, and SAT Prep courses.

They undertake the role of young ambassadors, strengthening the ties between our School and the United States. Infusing their enthusiasm, knowledge, ideas, language, and culture into our school community, they provide a cross-cultural educational experience.  In a very real sense, they serve as role models for our students.
