Application Process

Does this sound like you? Visit apply.atlascorps.org to learn more and start your application. Atlas Corps is accepting applications now for programs beginning in late 2021 and 2022. We encourage candidates to apply soon to receive priority consideration.

Mark Skill 1 on your application as Technology/Engineering and provide ample information on your skills and experiences! 

Do you have professional technology and engineering skills and experience but they compliment your primary skill (for example, data scientist or digital marketer)? Technology/Engineering could be marked as your Skill 2 or Skill 3. Skill 1 should reflect your primary skill-set (think what does my role title communicate?).

Compile work samples that can demonstrate your experience and responsibilities in this skill-set (these will be required in the application).

If Technology/Engineering is not your primary skill, check out the other skills that you can select on our application, and in particular, learn more about our priority skill areas.
