The Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity program is a funded fellowship based at the International Inequalities Institute at the London School of Economics and Political Science. Atlantic Fellowship is one of seven interconnected Atlantic Fellowships worldwide.
Fellows are bold and ready to challenge power who
- see the bigger picture of how inequalities are playing out
- are imaginative and daring in the way they envision solutions
- bring care and collaboration into their practice
- recognize the significance of the lived experience of inequality, and whose own lived experience informs their practice
- 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 program 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, leadership and skills development, and practical approaches to fostering social change.
On completion of their active fellowship year, Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity also join a lifelong community of senior Fellows from all seven Atlantic Fellows programmes.
Eligibility Criteria for Residential Track
- Applicants must qualify for admission to the London School of Economics’ MSc in Inequalities and Social Science. These requirements include a 2:1 degree or equivalent in any discipline. A background in social science and/or work experience in the social policy field are advantageous but not essential. Please refer to the LSE website for full details.
- However, GRE/GMAT requirements are not necessary.
- Applicants must meet LSE’s standard English Language Requirement.
- Applicants must have 7 to 10 years of experience demonstrating courage, care, leadership and commitment in advancing equitable solutions to inequality.
- Basically, applicants who have attained a PhD, who have completed an MSc within the past three years, or who are currently studying for a degree, will not normally be considered for the Residential track.
