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?

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. We are one of seven interconnected Atlantic Fellowships worldwide.

The Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity programme has two different tracks: Residential and Non-Residential. 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, leadership and skills development, and practical approaches to fostering social change.
