Atlas Corps implements a different selection process for the Virtual Leadership Institute with a shortened application and specific eligibility highlighted on particular web pages for each opportunity. Please check for the most updated information about deadlines and opportunities.

1. Application & Selection Board Review

Applicants are required to register for an account and save their login information through our online application system so that they can return to the application at any time.

The application includes a brief eligibility test to determine if applicants meet the basic requirements of our programs. Once applicants pass that initial eligibility test, they will be asked to give information on their passport, travel/visa history, language skills, employment history, professional skills, and social issue areas. They will also be asked to complete a brief biography and a short essay question.

The Fellowship application also requires additional attachments:

A. An official transcript or diploma from previously attended universities.

B. Two Recommendations: Applicants are required to submit contact information for at least two recommenders who know them in a professional capacity. Applicants will need to send their requests directly through the application system. Their recommenders will receive an email that asks for a recommendation. More detailed instructions can be found in the online application form.

Applicants may submit the online application before they upload their transcript/diploma and before the recommenders complete their forms. However, applicants will not be able to proceed to the later steps of the selection process until the entire application is complete. At that stage, the Atlas Corps Selection Board will review applications to determine to select strong applicants to move on to the interview stage of the Fellowship program. The Atlas Corps Selection Board includes the Atlas Corps staff and nonprofit sector, government, and business leaders from multiple countries.

2. Selection Board Interview (by invitation only)

Atlas Corps selects top applicants who have the potential to match Host Organization placements for an interview via Skype with the Atlas Corps Selection Board.

3. Semi-Finalist Status

Applicants that pass the interview stage will be designated a Semi-Finalist for the Atlas Corps Fellowship. Semi-Finalists for the Fellowship are eligible to be reviewed by potential Host Organizations for placements based on their interests and skillset and the organization’s needs.

4. Host Organization Review and Interview for the Fellowship

Potential Host Organizations submit position descriptions for their available Fellowship positions to Atlas Corps. We search our pool of Semi-Finalists for the top candidates that are the best fit for those positions and forward their applications to potential Host Organizations for a review.

Potential Host Organizations invite Semi-Finalists that best match their positions to conduct Skype video interviews with them, moving on to the Finalist stage. The Host Organization may ask for additional information from the Finalists, such as sample assignments.

5. Selection for the Fellowship

Host Organizations will make their final recommendations to Atlas Corps, and Atlas Corps will notify the selected applicants. After being selected, Atlas Corps will support Fellows making the necessary logistical arrangements to prepare for the Fellowship. For the online component of the Blended Fellowship and for the Remote Fellowship, Atlas Corps will support Fellows in reaching the technological capacity necessary to complete Host Organization requirements. For the U.S.-based component of the Blended Fellowship, Atlas Corps will support Fellows in applying for a J-1 visa in their respective countries.

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. Atlas Corps will continually reassess Semi-Finalists to determine if they are still in consideration for future Fellowship placements. Semi-Finalists MUST update their availability through their account every 2-4 months in order to remain in consideration for the Fellowship and to be eligible to have their application sent to prospective Hosts. Semi-Finalists will periodically receive a reminder email to do so.

Timeline: ATLAS CORPS FELLOWSHIP – Apply and change your life!

Atlas Corps considers applications on a rolling basis and year-round, though we encourage you to apply by priority deadlines for special initiatives listed on for a timely consideration of your application. When you apply for our programs, you’re not applying for a specific start date or a specific Host Organization. You are applying for the opportunity to be considered by Atlas Corps (and potential Host Organizations) for leadership development programs starting throughout the year.

Our Fellow Classes start approximately four times a year (typically January, April, July, and October). Placement cycles where we match top Semi-Finalists with our submitted Host roles take place approximately 1-4 months prior to the next Fellowship start date. For example, we place Fellows in our January class from September to early December, and our July class from March to early June.

We notify selected Fellows and Scholars approximately 4-8 weeks before the start of any program. Acceptance to a Fellowship class or Institute cohort cannot be deferred to a future start date. In the case of the Fellowship, you would typically have around 4–8 weeks to give notice to your current employer before starting the Fellowship.
