Fully Funded Atlantic Fellowship 2019/2020 is for the Social and Economic Equity Programme in London/ Cape Town. The Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity programme aims to cultivate a sustainable and catalytic community of Fellows who are part of a global community of social change leaders. Through two tracks, Residential and Non-Residential, the Fellowship combines rigorous academic coursework with practical approaches to fostering social change. Via two tracks, Residential and Non-Residential, the Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity programme combines rigorous academic coursework with practical approaches to fostering social change.  They are looking for Fellows who are bold, risky, and ready to challenge power; who see the bigger picture about how inequalities are playing out; who are imaginative and radical about solutions; who bring care and collaboration into their practice; who are not focused on advancing their careers, but are truly committed to changing the world.

In particular, they are looking for:

  • Experience: 
    • Deep commitment to social change, backed by seven to ten years of considerable real-world experience in challenging inequalities in activist, campaigning, arts, civil society, or other settings.
    • Individuals with less than seven but at least five years of experience will also be considered, based on their achievements in youth organizing or activism.
  • Clarity of vision: 
    • Innovative ideas, a clear sense of purpose, and a plan for using the learning offered by the programme to produce the real future impact, through an idea for a dissertation or project.
    • Readiness to grow in confidence and influence as a leader, in ways that embrace and advance the principles of social and economic equity, and their practice.
  • Potential to have impact: 
    • Courage to pursue lasting and meaningful change for economic and social equity, with the potential to be instrumental in shaping an inspiring vision, direction, and agenda for social change in specific geographies, fields, professions, and beyond.
    • Capacity to absorb and leverage the network, resources, and skills offered through the Fellowship.
  • Social and emotional maturity: 
    • Interest in learning from and engaging with different perspectives and experiences from across a range of contexts, with a corresponding ability to navigate complexity and diversity.
    • Openness to fully engage with the whole AFSEE learning journey, including the intellectual and personal transformation this process entails.
  • Commitment to collaboration: 
    • Willingness to actively contribute to a sustained peer-led, value-driven community.
    • Commitment to work with and support others in achieving individual and collective impact.
