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.
For more information, check out our fundraising guide (link above).
Each year we offer scholarships at the very beginning of our admissions season. These are now closed for 2016-2017 academic year. Please 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, simply enter your AMSA member number on our application.
"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
