Each academic year, residents are selected to hold leadership roles in I-House as Program Fellows, Resident Fellows, and Peer Counselor Fellows. These fellowship roles enable selected residents to draw upon their strengths and capabilities as intercultural communicators to plan programs that build community and facilitate interaction between residents. These leadership roles are intended to carry out the Mission of  I-House and promote community to make life at I-House a rewarding experience that embraces respect, empathy, and moral courage.

The fellowship application process for 2017-2018 is closed!

Fellowship Awards

Fellowship amounts currently range from $1,000 to $2,600 per academic year.

Leadership Development

Residents who are selected for Fellowships also have an opportunity to participate in the International Leaders Program (ILP), a series of training sessions designed to enhance the leadership and cross-cultural skills of residents living in our unique community.  Successful participants receive certificates of completion and a modest International Leaders Program Scholarship of $200 at the end of the academic year.

Resident Support Services Team

The Resident Support Services (RSS) team, consisting of 4 Peer Counselor Fellows and 27 Resident Fellows assigned to each floor, encourages residents to make new friends and helps develop natural support networks within International House.

Program Fellow Team

They also work together as a team throughout the year to plan the monthly calendar of program events, to create interaction among resident members, and thereby carry out the Mission of International House.
