Apply for a Paid, Overseas Fellowship with Atlas Corps
Priority Deadline extended to April 1 for Japanese applicants, but applications accepted year-round Atlas Corps seeks nonprofit leaders from around the world to apply for Fellowships in the U.S. and Latin America. They are particularly interested in rising leaders from Japan in 2013. Profiled as a “best practice” in international exchange by the Brookings Institution and featured in the Washington Post as a model social entrepreneurship program, Atlas Corps engages leaders committed to the nonprofit sector in 12-18 month, professional fellowships at organizations to learn best practices, build organizational capacity, and return home to create a network of global leaders. Fellows serve full-time at Host Organizations such as Ashoka, CARE, the Grameen Foundation, Habitat for Humanity, International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, UNICEF, and the UN Foundation. In addition, Fellows will supplement daily knowledge with theoretical topics presented in the Atlas Corps Global Leadership Lab and networking with leaders from around the world. This prestigious fellowship includes a living stipend to cover basic expenses (food, local transportation, and shared housing) and health insurance. Applications deadline is extended for Japanese applicants to April 1, to be considered for the September class, but application accepted year around.
