We help you fund international travel.

Every year, we help accepted students raise thousands of dollars in funding for their Atlantis Fellowship. On this page you will find more information about our fundraising tools, merit scholarships, and our limited need-based aid. Our team will do our best to help you find ways to fund your Fellowship, but in some cases this will take significant personal effort! Keep in mind that our application is free.


Accepted Atlantis Fellows will have the opportunity to be considered for the Atlantis Pre-Medical Leaders Scholarship,  a full scholarship for Atlantis Fellowships in 2017. The scholarship includes a flight and living stipend (up to $1500). A scholarship flyer with further details is below. We will award 10 or more full scholarships and some additional partial scholarships for successful 2017 applicants. To be considered for these scholarships, you will be asked to complete a separate application after enrolling and paying your Fellowship deposit. Scholarships are awarded based on academic prowess, leadership and extracurricular involvement, and demonstrated financial need.

"I aspire to travel the world and make a positive impact on it along the way.  The Atlantis project allowed me to do so by sending me to an island in the middle of the Atlantic where I got to shadow top tier physicians.  I am thankful for such a great opportunity and learning experience!"

- Austin Purviance, UNC Chapel Hill


"During my time as an Atlantis Fellow, I was able to shadow international doctors in a variety of departments including Pediatrics, Neurology, Cardiology, and Anesthesiology. After finishing this program, I felt like I better understood the different specialties and what a typical day would look like when I become a physician." 

- Kendall Bielak, George Mason University
