Six Programs. One Common Purpose.
While each of the six Atlantic Fellows programs is distinct and grounded in its local context, they share a common purpose of advancing fairer, healthier, more inclusive societies. At the heart of the The Atlantic Fellows is the belief that the more people working together on a set number of issues at the same time, the faster the progress and the greater the chance for success.
All programs start with a core fellowship experience, bringing together a cohort of 20 to 30 emerging leaders. Fellows are typically early- to mid-career professionals from a range of backgrounds, disciplines and life experiences who share a passion, determination and vision to realize a more just world.
