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.

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, 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.

How we select Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity

It is the Fellows themselves who make this fellowship experience so powerful. The knowledge and expertise, lived experience, passion, commitment and care that they bring to the global Atlantic fellowship community are what makes it so transformative.

We are working to build a cohort that reflects diverse perspectives and experiences, and the majority of our Fellows come from the global South. We look for a range of characteristics in our Fellows, in addition to their alignment to our values-led programme and the fellowship offering.

We are 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.

SELECTION CRITERIA

Your application should give us a clear idea of you, your values and your work, in relation to the following criteria:


EXPERIENCE

  • Deep commitment to social change, backed by seven to ten years of substantive real-world experience in challenging inequalities in policy-making, research, movement-building, activist or related settings.

CLARITY OF VISION AND FUTURE IMPACT

  • Innovative ideas, a clear sense of purpose, the courage to pursue lasting and meaningful change, and a plan for using the learning offered by the programme to produce real future impact, through an idea for a dissertation or project. 
  • Readiness to evolve and develop as a leader in ways that embrace and advance the principles of social and economic equity, and their practice.  
  • Potential to be instrumental in shaping an inspiring vision, direction and agenda for social change in specific geographies, fields, professions and beyond.

COMMITMENT AND READINESS

  • Interest in learning from and engaging with different perspectives and experiences from across a range of contexts, and a willingness to navigate the challenges and opportunities inherent in complexity and diversity.
  • Openness to fully engage with the whole Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity learning journey, including the intellectual and personal transformation this process entails.
  • Willingness to actively contribute to a sustained peer-led, values-driven community. 
  • Commitment to work with and support others in achieving individual and collective impact.

FOR RESIDENTIAL FELLOWS ONLY

  • Ability to make a compelling case for how undertaking and successfully completing the MSc in Inequalities and Social Science will make a contribution to the applicant’s social change agenda.
  • A focused agenda and plan to use the knowledge and skills gained from the MSc in Inequalities and Social Science.

FOR NON-RESIDENTIAL FELLOWS ONLY

  • A plan for a clear and achievable project, to be undertaken during the course of the fellowship, that challenges structural inequality. The project will seek to advance understanding of or challenges to inequalities.
