LSE’s Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity Programme
DEADLINE: 10 JANUARY 2022
Applications are now open for LSE’s Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity programme for social-change leaders who are working to tackle inequality.
Policymakers, researchers, activists, journalists, and movement-builders from around the world are invited to apply to the 2022-23 Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity programme at the London School of Economics and Political Science. Applications are open until 10 January 2022 for the innovative, inequalities-focused fellowship, which is housed at LSE’s International Inequalities Institute.
Currently recruiting for its sixth cohort, this fully-funded programme is aimed at mid-career social-change leaders with 7 to 10 years of experience, from across the globe, who are working to challenge inequality and are interested in spending one year of their careers with like-minded Fellows studying and reflecting on how they can take their fight against inequality to the next level. Applicants to the programme work in fields such as economic and social rights; sustainability and environmental activism; tax justice and economic alternatives; women’s, minority and disability rights; rights to education, health equity, housing, labour and community organising; and peacebuilding and transitional justice.
The Fellowship, which offers both Residential and Non-Residential tracks, begins with an active Fellowship year that offers an intensive period of learning and skills-building carried out in LSE’s research-rich environment informed by dialogic pedagogy and co-creation.
Fellows on the Residential track spend one year in London undertaking the MSc in Inequalities and Social Science at LSE, as well as participate in the programme’s four bespoke Fellowship modules over the course of the year. The modules, which are led by Dr Ishkanian and Programme Lead Dr Sara Camacho Felix feature contributions from academics, practitioners, campaigners and civil society professionals, and focus on the foundations of social and economic inequalities, policy for equity, challenging and transforming inequality, and debates around inequality.
Members of the Non-Residential track, who remain in their home countries and work contexts during the active Fellowship year, develop a practice-based project and join their Residential counterparts online and in-person for the Fellowship modules. After completing the programme, all Fellows join a lifelong Fellowship community made up of members of all seven Atlantic Fellows programmes worldwide and receive ongoing support to learn, connect and collaborate.
Launched in 2017, Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity is supported by an unprecedented £64 million, 20-year grant to LSE from The Atlantic Philanthropies. It aims to build a 400-strong inspiring community of Fellows over two decades. In its first five cohorts, the programme has brought together 85 change-makers from 40 countries in Africa, Asia, Oceania, Europe and North and South America. Along with the other six Atlantic Fellows programmes, Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity enables like-minded change-makers to build a global community to advance fairer, healthier, and more inclusive societies.
Deadline: Applications to Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity’s 2022-23 programme will close at 12:00 pm GMT (noon) on 10 January 2022. http://afsee.atlanticfellows.org/apply
