Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity programme
DEADLINE: 12 JANUARY 2023
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. This is one of seven interconnected Atlantic Fellowships worldwide.
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?
This program is 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.
The Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity programme has two different tracks:
Members of the Residential track also study the MSc in Inequalities and Social Science at LSE during their active fellowship year. Members of both tracks participate in rigorous academic coursework, as well as sessions on leadership and skills development, and practical approaches to fostering social change. On completion of their active fellowship year, our Fellows join a lifelong community of senior Fellows from all seven Atlantic Fellows programmes.
All applicants must complete an online application through the LSE’s Graduate Application System during the application period. In addition to filling in an application form, you will also need to:
Nominate two referees and make sure that both references have been submitted by the reference deadline on 5pm (UK time) on 19th of January 2023.
Upload your transcripts or a document stating that you do not hold an undergraduate degree.
Upload your statement of academic purpose. Please see here for advice on how to write a personal statement for the programme.
Upload your CV.
Take necessary steps to prove that you meet the minimum English-language requirements. However, please note that applicants are not required to sit an English-language test before they submit their application.
Please make sure you have allowed yourself enough time to complete the application, including providing all the required supporting documents.
It can take time to request documents from educational institutions, and many will be closed over the winter break, so we would advise starting the process early. If your application is incomplete when the applications close, it unfortunately will not be considered.
