The Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity Programm 2024-25- Are you a change-maker committed to fighting inequality? Do you want to learn from scholars, innovators, activists and social change organisations, and the latest academic research and expert insights on inequalities? Are you ready to join forces with a lifelong global network of peers?
The Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity programme is a transformative experience that emphasises learning, connection and reflection. For both our Residential Fellows and our Non-Residential Fellows, the fellowship journey begins with an immersive year at the London School of Economics and Political Science, centred around key learning Modules. It is an intense and demanding year that requires full commitment from Fellows as they join a community that helps to support, challenge, and deepen their learning and practice.
Applications for the 2024-25 programme are now open and will close at 5pm (UK time) on 11 January 2024
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.
Applications for the 2024-25 programme are now open and will close at 5pm UK time on 11 January 2024.
ELIGIBILITY & SELECTION
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.
Applicants for both the Residential and Non-Residential tracks must have at least 7 years of experience and be able to meet LSE’s English Language Requirements. Applicants to the Residential track must also qualify for admission to the MSc in Inequalities and Social Science programme at LSE.
Applicants need to give us a clear idea of who they are, their values and their work, particularly in relation to their experience in challenging inequalities; their clarity of vision and future impact; and their commitment and readiness to learn from and contribute to the Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity Community.

Upload documents, including your transcripts or a document stating that you do not hold an undergraduate degree; your statement of academic purpose; and your CV.
