Tomodachi Fellow

Apply for the TOMODACHI Fellows Program: a paid, overseas Fellowship with Atlas Corps.

Atlas Corps seeks nonprofit leaders from Japan and around the world to apply for the newly-launched TOMODACHI Fellows Program in the United States - a collaboration between the U.S.-Japan Council and Atlas Corps to engage leaders from Japan committed to the nonprofit sector in a 12 to 18 month, professional fellowship with organizations in the U.S. The TOMODACHI Fellows join the greater Atlas Corps community of more than 150 Fellows from around the world.

Atlas Corps Fellows serve full-time at Host Organizations such as Ashoka, CARE, Grameen Foundation, Habitat for Humanity, GlobalGiving Foundation, and the UN Foundation. In addition, Fellows complement their on-site learning with the Atlas Corps Global Leadership Lab and networking with leaders from around the world. This prestigious fellowship includes a living stipend to cover basic expenses (food, local transportation and shared housing) and health insurance. Fellows are committed to return to Japan for at least a year after their fellowship ends. Applications are accepted year-round. Apply by April 1 for priority consideration for our September class.
