Non-residential Fellows Scholarship by Atlantic Fellows

The Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity programme is a funded fellowship based at the "International-Inequalities" Institute at the UK London School of Economics and Political Science. It is one of seven interconnected Atlantic Fellowships worldwide.

The Institute is looking for change-makers committed to fighting inequality, who will become Fellows and learn from scholars, innovators, activists, and social change organisations, while learning the latest academic research and expert insights on inequalities.

The Fellows will be bold and ready to challenge power; see the bigger picture of how inequalities are playing out; are imaginative and daring in the way they envision solutions; bring care and collaboration into their practice; 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.

If you are ready to develop yourself and your leadership approach to facilitate change and join forces with a lifelong global network of peers, then apply for this scholarship to become a fellow at the International-Inequalities Institute.

How to Apply

Interested and qualified? Go to Atlantic Fellows on to apply

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.

  1. Residential Track: They 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
  2. Non-Residential Track: They 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.

If you have further questions, email [email protected]. We aim to respond within three working days.
