The Greek Diaspora Fellowship Program (GDFP) is a scholar exchange program for Greek universities to host Greek scholars from the diaspora in the areas of collaborative research, curriculum co-development and/or graduate/undergraduate student mentoring and teaching. The GDFP is funded by a grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) to the Institute of International Education (IIE). The program is administered in collaboration with the Fulbright Foundation in Greece. In the pilot of the program, IIE supported 49 fellowships over two selection cycles that created collaborative, mutually beneficial engagements between Greece and her academic diaspora.
