Summer Internships in Greece

 

Engaged Learning in Greece
 

This program, organized by Harvard's Center for Hellenic Studies, funds 3 Harvard University students to work and study in Nafplio, Greece, from May 30 - July 5, 2018. Nafplio is a small city on the Mediterranean coast with a rich cultural heritage. Students will combine an internship at the city of Nafplio, learning about Greece and urban development, and excursions in the region. The program has three components:

Internship
The interns will assist in creating and promoting English-language cultural materials and  programming events central to the Municipality’s goal of supporting tourism and urban development. Harvard students will be paired with Greek students of similar age and academic background for the duration of the internship.

Learning
Throughout the program, the students will be learning about Greek history and culture, tourism, and cities. They will have weekly meetings to explore the interface between their internship work and the city’s life and goals. Students will receive Harvard (Social Studies) credits for their work. This component will be taught by Nicolas Prevelakis and Nicole Newendorp.

Excursions:
Students will have the opportunity to visit important Greek sites in Nafplio, Athens, and beyond. 

Travel to Greece and accommodation in Nafplio are provided by the program. The interns also receive a stipend to cover living expenses while in Greece. Concentrators from all Harvard departments are eligible, but Social Studies students are particularly welcome due to their studies’ relevance. The whole program is in English. No knowledge of Greek is required. 

The deadline for applying is February 14, 2018.

Teaching Internship in Greece
 

This program, organized by Harvard's Center for Hellenic Studies, funds 4 Harvard students to work as teaching fellows (TFs) in a  seminar on Social Theory addressed to high school students, from July 5-21, 2018, in Nafplio, Greece, a small city on the Mediterranean coast with a rich cultural heritage. The seminar is entitled “Introduction to the Study of Humanity” and covers similar themes and texts to those of Social Studies 10. 

The TFs will have the opportunity to increase their knowledge and skills and to coordinate, guide, and support high school students with little or no previous exposure to university methods of studying texts, writing essays, conducting surveys, and preparing presentations. The fellowship includes two phases: the preparation of the seminar (March-April, in Cambridge MA), and the seminar itself (July 5-21, in Nafplio, Greece). 

Travel to Greece and accommodation in Nafplio are provided by the program. The TFs also receive a stipend to cover living expenses while in Greece. Concentrators from all Harvard departments are eligible, but Social Studies students are particularly welcome due to their studies’ relevance to the thematic areas of the summer program. The whole program is in English. No knowledge of Greek is required.
