The Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity at the International Inequalities Institute is a fantastic opportunity for those from social movement, civil society, academic, campaign or policy-making organisations to investigate and challenge the causes of inequalities.
The Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity will identify, prepare and connect cohorts of diverse, multidisciplinary and action-oriented leaders seeking radical solutions to the structural and historic barriers that underpin inequalities globally. You will be immersed in cutting-edge academic coursework and social change leadership training. Leadership is an essential component of the course, and you will work towards developing as a social change leader. You will become part of a wider network of Fellows, and will share insights and expertise, connecting at both LSE and the University of Cape Town. You will engage with leading activists and visionaries in their field, to shape challenges to inequality.
The Fellowship provides financial and logistic support for individuals to study at LSE in London, UK, either on a year-long MSc or through a series of short courses throughout the year.
All Atlantic Fellows are fully funded, with courses tailored to meet the time or financial needs of experienced professionals.
