Atlas Corps: Change your perspective, Change the world


The U.S. Department of State is pleased to announce a special opportunity for emerging civil society leaders to participate in a 6 to18 month professional fellowship in the United States. 

Atlas Corps, in partnership with the U.S. Government, seeks emerging civil society leaders for a funded, prestigious leadership development program in the United States—the Emerging Global Leaders Initiative (EGLI) Atlas Corps Fellowship.  Atlas Corps has supported over 300 emerging leaders from over 60 different countries and seeks candidates to apply as soon as possible for their next class of Fellows.  Fellows will be placed at leading civil society organizations in the United States. 

Individuals in the nonprofit or NGO sector with two or more years of experience, a college degree, and English proficiency are encouraged to apply.  Please forward on this opportunity to any interested leaders in the non-profit sector. 

What is Atlas Corps?

Atlas Corps is an international network of nonprofit leaders and organizations that promotes innovation, cooperation, and solutions to address the world’s 21st century challenges. Their mission is to address critical social issues by developing leaders, strengthening organizations, and promoting innovation through an overseas fellowship of skilled nonprofit professionals.  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 to 18 month, professional fellowships at organizations to learn best practices, build organizational capacity, and return home to create a network of global change makers. This program is fully-funded through private sector and foundation contributions.
