Atlas Corps Fellowship 2020 (Fully Funded To The United States)

Atlas Corps Fellowship 2020 (Fully Funded To The United States)

Atlas Corps invites social change leaders from around the world to apply for our Fellowship! We encourage candidates to plan for their futures and apply now because the selection process for Fellows typically takes several months, and because Atlas Corps is adapting its model to current global conditions.

Atlas Corps is also excited to be launching a blended fellowship that combines virtual service from Fellows’ home countries with service in the United States. The exact timing of the U.S.-based component of the Fellowship will depend on how guidelines about health, travel, and visas develop over time.

We will also be piloting our virtual learning network, an online Atlas Corps community that brings the professional and networking strengths of our model to emerging social impact leaders across the world.

The Atlas Corps Fellowship is a 12-18 month Fellowship in the United States and online 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. Atlas Corps sponsors the J-1 Trainee visa and covers most visa expenses. Atlas Corps also provides each Fellow with a living stipend to cover basic expenses (food, local transportation, and shared housing), a monthly phone plan, emergency health and travel insurance, and round-trip international airfare.

Through this Fellowship, Atlas Corps seeks to advance the U.S. State Department Education and Cultural Exchange Bureau’s Mission: To promote mutual understanding through people-to-people exchanges and to further U.S. foreign policy objectives by engaging international exchange visitors and American communities in a diversity of positive, safe, and enriching educational, cultural and professional exchange programs.
