The deadline for applications to the 2019-20 Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity programme is 20 November 2018. Please help us spread the news about this programme, which brings activists and social change leaders from around the world to LSE’s International Inequalities Institute.
We’re looking for people around the world who are working for a fairer world.
The Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity programme allows fellows to work with leading scholars, practitioners and civil society organisations. In its first two years, AFSEE has brought together 40 change-makers from Africa, Asia, Oceania, Europe and North and South America. Most AFSEE participants have not previously had access to a major fellowship or scholarship, and all have spent seven to ten years fighting inequality in fields such as human rights, environmental activism, community and labour organising, transparency and governance, gender and disability rights, civic and democratic engagement, journalism, public health, social policy and peace and reconciliation.
The programme has both residential and non-residential tracks, with residential fellows completing the LSE’s MSc in Inequalities and Social Science, and non-residential fellows participating in four AFSEE modules in London and Cape Town over one year. AFSEE is one of seven Atlantic Fellows programmes worldwide, and is supported by The Atlantic Philanthropies via a 20-year grant that will fund the creation of a 600-strong cohort of lifelong fellows.
