Apply for the The Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity Programme 2020/2021 (Fully Funded)
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 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. 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.
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 2020-21 cohort, Residential Fellows will be expected to be resident in London from mid-September 2020 (exact date TBC).
Benefits The Residential Track of the Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity programme is a funded fellowship. 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. In the event of emergencies, the programme has a Resilience Fund to which Fellows can apply. Further information is available on request.
