Paid, Overseas Nonprofit Fellowship (Atlas Corps)

Nonprofit Leaders: Apply for a Paid, Overseas Fellowship with Atlas Corps (U.S. and Colombia)
Deadline: November 1st (US), November 15th (Latin America)

***Exciting news - Atlas Corps is expanding in Latin America! In addition to our Fellowship opportunities in Colombia, we also now offer placements in Chile. We encourage applicants to be keep an open mind about serving in either country. Since placements are dependent on Host Organization needs/interest, it increases an applicant's chances of being selected if there is interest in both countries.

Since Chile is a new location, our application materials may not accurately reflect this new addition to our Fellowship. Our March Protected content will be the first Class that goes to Chile. In terms of structure, the Chile division of the Latin American program will be similar to Colombia.
