Studying abroad can be expensive. We're here to help.

Every year, we help our students raise thousands of dollars in funding for their hospital fellowship program. On this page you will find more information about our fundraising tools, merit scholarships, and need-based aid. We're dedicated to helping you make your fellowship a reality if you are accepted. And keep in mind that our application is free.


Merit-Based Scholarships

We are excited to announce the Atlantis Project Pre-Medical Leadership Scholars Program, a full, merit-based scholarship for 3-8 week Atlantis Project programs in 2016. The scholarship includes a flight and living stipend (up to $1500). A program flyer with further details is below. All Atlantis Project applicants are considered for the Medical Leadership Scholars program.

We will award at least 5 full-scholarships for successful 2016 applicants, and likely more.

* The application link below is for our Winter, Spring, and Summer Fellowships. There is not a separate scholarship application. When students apply for our Fellowships they are automatically considered for the merit-based scholarship if they meet the eligibility requirements listed in the scholarship flyer.

Fundraise for your Fellowship.

After you apply, we will also talk with you about creative and powerful ways to raise hundreds and even thousands of dollars for your hospital shadowing program. Our team has years of experience in helping our students raise funds. We will also help you find the cheapest flights to your Fellowship location.


"I traveled to Albacete for two weeks this summer to shadow doctors in the Spanish healthcare system. We were placed in 4 different specialties where we got to watch surgeries, ask questions, experience socialized healthcare, and make the most of opportunities unavailable to us in America. I wasn't fluent in Spanish by any means, but all of the doctors were super helpful in teaching me through the language barrier. My guide, Paco, was amazing and helped me with everything from getting to the residence from the airport, to what to order at the Spanish restaurants. The excursions were incredible, the doctors were insightful, and the experience was unbeatable. I didn't know anyone going into the trip, but I left with some of the best friends! I recommend the AP to everyone considering a career in a healthcare field!"
