Applications for the 2022-23 Atlantic Fellowship for Social and Economic Equity programme are now open. The fellowship is open to all nationalities and the deadline is 10th January 2022.
The Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity programme is a funded fellowship based at the International Inequalities Institute at the London School of Economics and Political Science. We are one of seven interconnected Atlantic Fellowships worldwide.
Are you a change-maker committed to fighting inequality? Do you want to learn from scholars, innovators, activists and social change organisations, and the latest academic research and expert insights on inequalities? Are you ready to join forces with a lifelong global network of peers?
We are looking for Fellows who are bold and ready to challenge power; who see the bigger picture of how inequalities are playing out; who are imaginative and daring in the way they envision solutions; who bring care and collaboration into their practice; who recognise the significance of lived experience of inequality, and whose own lived experience informs their practice; who focus not on advancing their careers, but on their commitment to changing the world through collective and collaborative approaches.
The Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity programme has two different tracks: Residential and Non-Residential. Members of the Residential track also study the MSc in Inequalities and Social Science at LSE during their active fellowship year. Members of both tracks participate in rigorous academic coursework, as well as sessions on leadership and skills development, and practical approaches to fostering social change.
On completion of their active fellowship year, our Fellows join a lifelong community of senior Fellows from all seven Atlantic Fellows programmes.
Fellowship programme consists of a Residential track and a Non-Residential track.
Residential Fellows will undertake a full-time, one-year MSc in Inequalities and Social Science at LSE, in addition to AFSEE Modules. The Residential track is suitable for people who can dedicate themselves to full-time study for a full academic year. Residential Fellows are required to relocate to London for the duration of the MSc programme. Modest financial support is available for Fellows who have family care responsibilities.
Non-Residential Fellows are offered a unique opportunity to work on and study inequalities over a period of 12 months via a set of distinct, comprehensive AFSEE Modules, and practice-based project work. Non-Residential Fellows remain based in their home and professional environments during the Fellowship year, and travel to attend the in-person AFSEE Modules. Because of the reduced time and location commitment, this Fellowship track is ideal for applicants who are unable to take a full year off from their work. However, they will be expected to commit time, at least three hours per week in addition to their Module commitments, for reading, coursework, and project work.
Each Non-Residential Fellow receives support from a dedicated mentor who has been selected for expertise and experience in the Fellow’s area of focus.
The Non-Residential Track of the Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity programme is a funded fellowship. The fellowship includes full tuition fees; up to a £10,000 grant to support project work; dedicated mentorship; any necessary travel expenses to in-person modules; accommodation and related costs during Modules; and reimbursement of visa fees.
Modest financial support is available for Fellows who have family care responsibilities. The programme also has a Resilience Fund to which Fellows can apply in the event of emergencies. Further information is available upon request.
