In-Person Fellowship in the U.S.
The Atlas Corps In-Person Fellowship is a 12-18 month Fellowship in the United States for the world’s top social change leaders. Fellows serve full-time with Host Organizations to develop leadership skills and learn effective practices through the Atlas Corps Global Leadership Lab professional development series and networking opportunities with other Fellows. The U.S.-based component of the Fellowship allows participants to engage in group cultural activities like a D.C. Monuments Tour, sporting events, U.S. holiday celebrations, and more.
Blended Fellowship (Virtual + U.S.-Based)
The typical blended Fellowship will include 4-6 months of full-time remote service from Fellows’ home countries with U.S.-based Host Organizations until they can safely travel to the U.S. for in-person service.
During remote service, Fellows receive a stipend based on the local cost of living that would cover lodging for one person, basic utilities, food, local transportation, and financial support for the technology necessary to meet Host Organization requirements remotely. See above for a description of in-person service.
Virtual Leadership Institute
This eight-month online program includes keynote speakers, interactive workshops, self-led activities, discussion groups, and community-building activities with leading U.S. organizations and leaders. Participants, known as Atlas Corps Scholars, enhance their professional skills, build their global networks, and increase their likelihood of being placed as an Atlas Corps Fellow.
You can apply to become a Fellow if you meet the following minimum requirements:
- 2 to 10 years of relevant experience in the social sector, which can include NGOs/nonprofits, businesses, government, social enterprises, or media organizations
- Bachelor’s degree or equivalent
- English proficiency (oral, writing, reading)
- Age 35 or younger when the Fellowship begins
- Applying to volunteer in a country other than where you are from (Americans cannot apply to our U.S. Fellowship)
