Scholarship Application Method 

Application Process:

We consider applications on a rolling basis. You are encouraged to apply as soon as possible to be considered for Host Organization placements, which begin in January, May, or September. The application is a multi-step process.

  1. Online Application - Part 1: You will need to create a login and you can save your responses so you can return to the application at any time. In Part 1 of the application (known as the “short form”), you provide contact information and complete the initial eligibility test, and if you pass the eligibility test, you’ll complete additional background questions and one short essay.

    NOTE: In order to sponsor candidates to come to the United States for one year as a Fellow, we require detailed information about each applicant. Please answer each question honestly and thoroughly. If you are found to be dishonest in the application, you will NOT be accepted as a Fellow and you will be sent home if you have been accepted.
  2. Online Application - Part 2 (by invitation only): Atlas Corps will review Part 1 applications and invite eligible candidates to complete Part 2 of the application (known as the “long form”), which includes additional questions about your skills and interests and several short essay questions. You will also be required to submit contact information for at least two references who know you in a professional capacity and will write a letter of recommendation about your skills and experiences as well as your potential for success as an Atlas Corps Fellow. You will need to send your requests for letter of recommendation directly through the application system. Your recommenders will receive an email that asks for a recommendation. More detailed instructions can be found in the online application form.
  3. Atlas Corps Review Process (by invitation only): Atlas Corps will review Part 2 applications and select top candidates to interview via Skype with the Atlas Corps Selection Board, including Atlas Corps staff and nonprofit sector, government, and business leaders from multiple countries.
  4. Host Organization Review Process (by invitation only): Candidates who pass the Atlas Corps interview stage will be designated as Semi-Finalists, which means they are eligible to be reviewed by potential Host Organizations for placements based on their interests and skillset and the organization’s needs. Host Organizations will conduct Skype video interviews with selected Semi- Finalists.
  5. Selection and Visa Process: Host Organizations will make their final recommendations to Atlas Corps, and Atlas Corps will notify the selected candidates. After being selected, Fellows will go to the U.S. Embassy in their respective countries to apply for a J-1 visa. Atlas Corps will provide support in obtaining this visa. 

    Semi-Finalists who are not selected by a Host Organization will be notified and may be given the option to keep their application on file for consideration for the next class of the Fellowship.

Timeline

Atlas Corps receives hundreds of applications each month, so each of the steps listed above may take approximately 1-3 months. Most applications are reviewed within two major vetting periods each year. Occasionally Atlas Corps may “fast-track” applications for special opportunities, but in most cases, the vetting process will take several months overall. You may apply at any time and be considered, but we encourage you to spend some time on your application, including having it be reviewed by a peer, and then submit it as early as possible and not wait for any deadlines, so that we can start reviewing your eligibility and background. See below for the approximate calendar, which is subject to change.

If you submit Part 1 of the application by June 19, 2017:

  • July 10, 2017 - Approximate priority deadline to submit Part 2 of the application. Only eligible Part 1 applicants will be invited to Part 2 of the application, and the exact deadline will be listed in your invitation. If you miss this deadline, you can still submit Part 2 of the application later and be considered during the next review period.
  • July-September, 2017: Atlas Corps reviews applications and conducts Skype interviews. Atlas Corps will notify candidates whether they have advanced to the Semi-Finalist stage and are eligible for placement with Host Organizations.
