The fellowship is a 12-18 month programme in the United States for the world’s top social leaders
US-based organisation Atlas Service Corps is accepting applications for its Atlas Corps Fellowship for the April 2020 class and beyond.
The fellowship is a 12-18 month programme in the United States for the world's top social leaders to expand their networks and develop professional skills.
Atlas Corps accepts applications for the fellowship year-round, but the priority deadline to apply for placements beginning in April 2020 is November 3, 2019.
The fellowship is open to non-US citizen youths (ages 35 or younger) with a bachelor's degree or the equivalent, two or more years of relevant experience, and working-level proficiency in English (oral, writing and reading).
Applicants must have a commitment to return to their home country after their 12-18 month fellowships.
Fellows serve full-time at host organisations to develop leadership skills and learn effective practices through the Atlas Corps Global Leadership Lab professional development series and networking opportunities with other fellows.
Participants in this fellowship receive health insurance, flight and visa costs, and a living stipend to cover basic expenses (food, local transportation, and shared housing).
Atlas Corps is an international network of social sector leaders and organisations that promotes innovation, cooperation, and solutions to address the world's 21st-century challenges.
