5 Fellow Positions for Post Grads at the American Farm School in Greece

The American Farm School & Perrotis College are located just outside the city of Thessaloniki in Northern Greece; a vibrant city of 1.2 million people. We are a unique American-founded residential institution educating Greek students from all over the country – villages and islands – and 100% of our high school and college students receive scholarships to attend. Our diversified educational farm serves as a living laboratory that supports applied research and hands-on learning (​www.afs.edu.gr​) and our teaching team is dedicated to a learn-by-doing approach to the education of students in the areas of agriculture, the environment, and other life sciences related to our sustainable future. Building on more than a century-long tradition of educating stewards of the land, the American Farm School prepares future leaders who value the wise use of natural resources, preservation of the environment, the application of life sciences to solving problems, the importance of community service, and effective utilization of information technology.

We have been running a post-bachelor fellow program for many years and have found them to be an excellent addition to our vital campus life. They act as professional colleagues to our experienced staff while becoming themselves ardent students of Greek culture and life.

We are pleased to offer five post-bachelor fellow positions for the 2020-2021 academic year ranging from student life administration to English language teaching to a writing fellow.

To apply for any of the fellow positions, you must first attend a mandatory informational webinar (offered on multiple dates in November & December 2019). Afterwards, you will receive a link to the online application, and further instructions to complete your application (including how to submit your CV/Resume, Statement of Interest, and Two Recommendation Letters). To register for the informational webinar, please email Leighanne Penna at fellows@afs.edu.gr

Completed application and all supplementary documents must be submitted by 12:00am (midnight EST) Monday, January 20, 2020. Qualified applicants will be notified via email to arrange a Skype interview. Skype interviews will be held in late January / early February and the selection process will finish before March 1, 2020.

Global Community Post-Grad Fellowship in Asia – Deadline 11/3/19


Priority Deadline: November 3, 2019 11:59 PM US Pacific Time
Program Dates:
 June 2020 – June 2021
Locations: Hong Kong, Indonesia, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam

The Global Community Fellowship is a 13-15 month program for graduating seniors and young/ established professionals. Fellows work at NGOs, schools, universities, and social enterprises across Asia to support community development and youth education programs. By working directly with communities, fellows get hands-on experience learning how organizations in Asia are using creative and innovative methods to address critical social challenges.

Who Can Apply? Starting and experienced professionals with a BA or BS degree (must graduate by June 2020). Although the fellowship is primarily aimed towards US citizens, we do accept applications from international residents who have a previous connection to VIA or a substantial US connection.

Fellow Duties

Fellows often engage in a wide range of activities and tasks with our local partners. Although there is often overlap in the kinds of work fellows will do, they can be thought of as two broad categories:

Education-focused — With these partners, you’ll advance student development using critical thinking and cross-cultural communication. Through teaching (English or other subjects depending on the post), you’ll  help students to access future education and professional opportunities.

NGO-focused — At these posts, you’ll support community development and international communication efforts by supporting NGOs to access resources, networks, and collaboration opportunities. You may help with fundraising, project management, and community outreach efforts of our local partners.
