Atlas Corps Fellowship for Nonprofit Leaders

Wednesday, November 14, 2012
The Atlas Corps Fellowship is a 12-18 month professional fellowship offered three times a year for nonprofit leaders from around the world. Fellows serve full-time at Host Organizations located either in the United States or Latin America working on issues that complement their expertise.
 
Fellows develop their leadership skills while sharing best practices and supplement daily knowledge with theoretical topics presented in the Atlas Corps Nonprofit Management Series.

Eligibility
The minimum requirements to apply to become a Fellow are:
  • 2 or more years of relevant experience in the nonprofit/NGO/social sector
  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent
  • English proficiency (oral, writing, reading)
  • Spanish proficiency (for the Latin American Fellowship only)
  • Age 35 or younger when the Fellowship begins
  • Applying to volunteer in a country other than where you are from
  • Commitment to return to your home country after the 12-18 month fellowship.


The U.S. Fellowship begins in January, May, and September, while the Latin American Fellowship begins in March and September. Each Fellowship begins with a one-week orientation program, followed by 50 weeks at your Host Organization. Fellowships may be extended by their Host Organization for up to six months.
