Atlantic Fellowships for Social and Economic Equity

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. It is one of seven interconnected Atlantic Fellowships worldwide.

The programme is 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 are not focused on advancing their careers, but are truly committed to changing the world through collective and collaborative approaches.

The fellowship programme offers two tracks: Residential and Non-Residential. Participants in both tracks participate in rigorous academic coursework, leadership development and practical approaches to fostering social change. On completion of their active fellowship year, Fellows join a lifelong community of senior Fellows from all seven programmes.

Benefits

Residential Track:

  • Offer up to 9 Residential Fellowships annually. Residential Fellows undertake a full-time, one-year MSc in Inequalities and Social Science at LSE, in addition to AFSEE Modules and a dedicated mentorship.
  • The Residential Track is only suitable for people who are able to 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.

    For the 2021-22 cohort, Residential Fellows will be expected to be resident in London from mid-September 2021 (exact date TBC).

  • Residential Fellows receive support from a dedicated LSE academic mentor, from the AFSEE Academic Lead through monthly meetings and regular check-ins, and via further opportunities for engagement offered throughout the year.
  • The fellowship includes full tuition fees, an £18,000 stipend to cover living costs while in London, travel to and from Cape Town for the South Africa module, and travel to and from London at the beginning and end of the active fellowship, including 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.

    Non-Residential Track:

  • Offer up to 9 Non-Residential Fellowships annually.
  • Non-Residential Fellows are offered a unique opportunity to investigate inequalities over a period of 12 to 18 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, and travel to attend the Modules.
  • Because of the reduced time and location commitment, this fellowship is ideal for applicants who are unable to take a full year off from their 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 fellowship includes full tuition fees; a £3,000 grant to support project work; dedicated mentorship; travel to and from London/Cape Town for each Module; 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.

    Eligibility Criteria

    The programme is especially keen to support applicants:

  • Who live in the global South (in particular Africa, Far East, the Middle East, Latin America, Southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent), although this factor will never be considered in isolation.
  • Who do not otherwise have the resources to finance their participation in activities such as these, especially people from the global South.
  • Who have not already had significant access to fellowships or scholarships.

    Residential Fellows:

    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.

  • GRE/GMAT requirement: None.
  • 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.

    Note: 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.

  • Non-Residential Fellow:
  • Applicants should have achieved a 2:1 undergraduate degree or equivalent in any discipline, although in exceptional circumstances, work experience may be considered in lieu of a formal higher education qualification.
  • GRE/GMAT requirement: None.
  • 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.

    Apply by 31st January.
