Fellowships to Canada and International individuals for leadership development training at USA-based organizations. The fellowship is intended for social change leaders from around the world to gain experience and learn professional development skills at host organizations, while participating in enriching educational, cultural, and professional exchange programs.
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 creates a life changing experience where participants can learn from diverse cultures around the globe. It offers an enabling environment for hands-on learning and the development of professional skills.
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.
Currently, a blended fellowship will be launched 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.

Fellows – but not their dependents – receive:
- Program-related international travel
- Program-related domestic travel
- Basic health insurance that covers new injuries and illnesses (or funds to purchase basic health insurance)
- Monthly stipend for basic living expenses in the city where the Fellow is placed (shared housing, food, local transportation, and a phone plan)
- Documentation (DS-2019) that enables the Fellow to obtain a J-1 visa
- Placement with a Host Organization
- Participation in the Atlas Corps Global Leadership Lab (leadership development training series)
- For Fellows serving in the blended fellowship, Atlas Corps will provide financial support for the technology necessary to complete Host Organization requirements remotely from their home countries.
Most Fellowships end 12 months after they begin. Fellows and Host Organizations may choose to extend the Fellowship, up to a total Fellowship length of 18 months.
Due to the current Coronavirus pandemic, 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, and the individual needs of the Host Organization, but the typical blended Fellowship will last 12-14 months. This will include:
- 2-4 months of service from Fellows’ home countries: Fellows would serve remotely full-time with U.S.-based Host Organizations.
- 8-11 months of service in the U.S.: Fellows would then arrive in the U.S. for in-person service with their Host Organizations, ideally in mid-September.
The U.S. Fellowship begins every three months. Typically Fellowships start in January, April, July, and October, but start dates may be modified based on health, visa, and travel guidelines. (Each Fellowship begins with a one-week orientation program.)
