Atlas Corps and the American India Foundation are still accepting applications for the AIF Banyan Impact Fellowship for service in the United States. As an AIF Banyan Impact Fellow, you will serve full-time at one of our U.S.-based Host Organizations. Learn more at aif.atlascorps.org!

Meet AIF Banyan Impact Fellow Tabish (Class 46, ) who is serving as the Global Engagement Programs Fellow for the Northwestern Buffett Institute for Global Affairs at Northwestern University. Tabish shares how his Host Organization (especially his supervisor, Patrick Eccles) is contributing to his global perspective, "With Patrick’s wealth of experience, he has been more than kind in extending that to me on various occasions during our class visits, campus outings and other events. I go back to a recent conversation on diversity, equity and inclusion where I learned about what it means in the US context and was left thinking of ways how I can incorporate that in the general discourse back in India."
