Apply for the Atlas Corps Special Initiative for Palestinian Professionals.

The Atlas Corps Special Initiative for Palestinian Professionals is supported by the U.S. Government and is specifically looking to recruit emerging Palestinian social change leaders for professional development opportunities in the United States and online.

The Atlas Corps Fellowship engages professionals committed to social change in 12-18 months of service with organizations online and in the U.S. to learn best practices, build organizational capacity, and return home to create a network of global leaders. The new Virtual Leadership Institute offers a 7-month online learning program that brings the professional and networking strengths of our model to emerging social impact leaders across the world. For more information about these programs and the benefits to participating, visit

COVID-19 Update: The timeline for arrival to the U.S. for In-Person and Blended Fellows depends on how health, travel, and visa guidelines develop over time. Once travel is possible, Atlas Corps coordinates with the U.S. State Department to support selected Fellows in applying for their U.S. visas and any necessary travel permits.

Basic Eligibility Requirements
Candidates must have a college degree, have 2-10 years of full-time professional experience working to address critical social issues, be highly proficient in English, be no older than 35, and be committed to applying their experience in their home country after the program.

Application Process
Applicants for this special initiative should go through the same online application process as other applicants for our Atlas Corps programs. As part of the application process, our partners at the U.S. Department of State may review application information and invite eligible candidates to an interview.
