We help you fundraise
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, flight-buying strategies and scholarships. 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.
Low Cost Flights
We recommend searching for flights through sites like skyscanner.com or edreams.net. These sites often offer cheaper ticket options than Orbitz or Kayak, which can help when searching for flights but typically pull up the more expensive fare options. They do not show low cost carriers like Ryanair or Easyjet, which offer cheap flights throughout Europe and are included on skyscanner.com and edreams.net.
One helpful strategy to find cheap flights is to look for tickets with a layover (with plenty of time to avoid missing a leg) for both departing and arriving flights.
As with any part of our programs, our admissions and site coordinators are here to help you coordinate every step of the way. Should you have any questions regarding booking flights or cheaper fares, feel free to reach out to our team, and we'll help you in any way we can.
Pre-med Leadership Scholars Program
Each year we offer scholarships during our admissions season. These are now open for the 2017-2018 academic year. Please reach out to our admissions team for more information, and keep in mind these are extremely competitive. For profiles of some Merit Scholar Alumni click here.
The Atlantis Project is a proud partner of the American Medical Student Association (AMSA). Every year we award scholarships of $500 to AMSA members that can be applied toward an Atlantis Fellowship of four or more weeks. To be considered, please enter your AMSA member number in your application and let your Program Coordinator know that you want to be considered. Interested students will go through an interview process, and selected participants will receive the $500 AMSA scholarship.
"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
"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 the Azores where I got to shadow top tier physicians. I am thankful for such a great opportunity and learning experience!"
- Austin Purviance, UNC Chapel Hill
