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.
