LOS ANGELES – Annetta Kapon, assistant chair of the graduate fine arts program at Otis College of Art and Design has been chosen for the first round in the Greek Diaspora Fellowship Program. Kapon will travel to Greece to work with professor Marios Spiliopoulos in the graduate program at the Athens School of Fine Arts. Her work will focus on curriculum development, teaching, graduate student mentoring, and strengthening international connections for graduate students and faculty. The project will take place from January 25 to March 25, 2017.

Twelve Greek universities were selected by the Greek Diaspora Fellowship Program to host the fellows for collaborative projects that meet specific needs at their institutions and in their communities. The fellows were chosen from prominent North American universities, but are all of Greek heritage, and while working in a broad range of areas including public health, chemical genomics research, English language curriculum, and more, will help to develop long-term, mutually-beneficial collaborations between universities in Greece and the United States and Canada.

The Greek Diaspora Fellowship Program is managed by the Institute of International Education in collaboration with the Fulbright Foundation in Greece, and funded by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.

“The Stavros Niarchos Foundation is thrilled both with the appeal and interest the program has generated among academics of the diaspora, as well as the wide ranging expertise of the first round of Fellows,” stated Stelios Vasilakis, Director of Programs and Strategic Initiatives at SNF. “We look forward to these partnerships, which we believe will build long-lasting relationships and be beneficial to all parties involved. We are grateful to the Institute of International Education for their dedication to the program as well as the invaluable input of the esteemed Advisory Council.”

“The Stavros Niarchos Foundation’s generous support for these Fellowships demonstrates the Foundation’s commitment to expanding Greece’s human capital and investing in the country’s long-term economic recovery,” said Allan Goodman, President and CEO of the Institute of International Education.
