The Hellenic Initiative (THI) announces the launch of a new program called “The Fellowship for a New Economy”.The Fellowship for a New Economy invests in human capital – the mindsets and capabilities required to shape sustainable growth over the long-term.
Early and mid-career Greek professionals will complete 12-month rotations in leading U.S. businesses, building the functional skills and mindsets to guide strategic growth in core economic sectors. Fellows will also participate in a rigorous professional development program to create a community of change leaders committed to a shared vision of the future.
Participating companies include well-known multinationals such as Coca-Cola, Dow Chemical, Libra Group and IBM; leading US companies such as Hostess, Pabst, Huffington Post, and strong regional firms like R&R Partners, Suffolk Construction, Gristedes, Admirals Bank, Res-Tech Plastic Molding and Metanautix. More than 20 companies have signed on to host one or more Fellows.
Fellows will also participate in a rigorous executive education program that will combine lectures, practitioner-led classes, roundtables with business leaders, real-life cases and workshops focused on self-discovery, interpersonal skills and team building.
The Fellowship offers a stipend of $35,000-$45,000 US to support living expenses. The program will also provide health insurance and will assist with travel expenses and obtaining a J-1 Visa.
Successful candidates will demonstrate complete English language proficiency (written and oral) and possess academic and/or professional experience in targeted growth sectors or functions important to those growth sectors (e.g., marketing, business development, operations, etc.).
Fellows will be selected based on problem solving and analytic skills and a track record of academic and professional success. Candidates must demonstrate a strong commitment to public service and a vision for building a strategic growth sector in Greece, and they must be committed to returning to Greece upon completion of the fellowship.
The program comprises two tracks:
1) Intern Fellowship – Enrolled graduate student or graduate of a graduate degree program no more than six months prior to date of application
2) Trainee Fellowship – Graduate degree with at least one year of relevant work experience OR at least an undergraduate degree and five years relevant work experience. For candidates with at least five years relevant work experience the degree need not be related to their current profession.
Applications are due May 7, 2014. Selections will be made by July and Fellowships will begin in September 2014.
