Student Support Fellows work in academic support and study skills classrooms with middle and high school students who benefit from extra assistance beyond the traditional classroom. The Student Support Fellows serve as role models and coaches to enhance student skills and confidence across the curriculum through one-on- one or small group engagement. This position allows Williams students interested in working in the field of special education valuable, hands-on experience with individual students.
Subject Area Fellows serve in a similar capacity as Writing Fellows, assisting middle and high school students in those specific subject areas in individual classrooms. Mt. Greylock teachers utilize their Williams Fellows in a variety of ways to better reach the needs of individual and small groups within their classrooms.

These are paid positions; although not required, it is helpful for candidates to be licensed drivers as they will travel to and from Mt. Greylock once or twice a week. Fellows gatherings take place on campus to hear invited educational speakers and for informal, peer discussion groups.
