Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity (AFSEE), housed at the International Inequalities Institute at the London School of Economics and Political Science, is an innovative fully-funded fellowship that brings together policymakers, activists, practitioners, artists, and researchers from around the world to explore and challenge the root causes of inequality. The programme is aimed at mid-career social change leaders, from diverse countries and contexts, who are working to challenge inequality.
The programme has two different tracks:
1. Residential: Fellows on the Residential track undertake the MSc in Inequalities and Social Science degree at LSE and participate in the programme’s bespoke modules over the course of the year.
2. Non-Residential: Members of the Non-Residential track, who remain in their home countries and work contexts during the active fellowship year, undertake practice-based project work and travel to join their Residential counterparts on the fellowship modules.
• Full tuition fees for the MSc in Inequalities and Social Science at LSE
• Stipend to cover living costs in London
• Grant to support Fellows’ project work
• Modest financial support for Fellows who have family care responsibilities.
• Support from a dedicated mentor
Who can apply?
• Applicants must have 7 to 10 years of experience of substantive real-world experience in challenging inequalities.
• For Residential Fellows: Applicants must qualify for admission to the MSc in Inequalities and Social Science at LSE. These requirements include an undergraduate degree (equivalent to 2:1 degree or above) in any discipline. A background in social science and/or work experience in the social policy field are advantageous but not essential.
• Non-Residential Fellows: Applicants should have an undergraduate degree (equivalent to 2:2 or above) in any discipline. However, they aim to be inclusive and to encourage applications from non-traditional applicants and they are therefore open to applications from applicants who do not hold an undergraduate degree.
• Applicants must meet LSE’s standard English Language Requirement.
