Greek Diaspora Fellowship Program
The Greek Diaspora Fellowship Program (GDFP) is a scholar exchange program for Greek universities to host a Greek-born scholar in the areas of collaborative research, curriculum co-development and/or graduate student teaching and mentoring. The GDFP is funded by a grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) to the Institute of International Education (IIE) in collaboration with the Fulbright Foundation in Greece. With this grant, IIE supported 50 fellowships over two selection cycles that created collaborative, mutually beneficial engagements between Greek and North American academics and universities.
Applying to the GDFP
The GDFP has a two-ended application process. A Project Request to be submitted by a host and a Scholar Application to be submitted by a Greek- or Cypriot-born scholar.Learn more
Any degree conferring institution in Greece can submit a project request to host a Greek or Cypriot-born scholar currently living in the United States or Canada on projects. The host institution can collaborate with a specific scholar on the Project Request or submit without naming a scholar. If the host submits without naming a scholar, IIE will search their Roster of qualified candidates to be matched to the request.Learn more about hosting
Greek and Cypriot-born academics currently living in the United States and Canada and working at institutions of higher education can submit a Scholar Application to the Scholar Roster. The scholar can work with a specific host institution on a Project Request or remain on the roster until a project that fits their expertise is submitted by a Greek host institution.Submit a Scholar Application
