Introduction to the Atlantic Fellows Programme 2024/2025 For African Students 

The Atlantic Fellows programme for Social and Economic Equity at the International Inequalities Institute is a fantastic new opportunity for experienced academics and senior practitioners to dig deeper into the causes of inequalities. The programme will provide a unique platform for fellows to collaborate on research projects, exchange ideas, and build networks. As a participant in the programme, individuals will have the opportunity to access an extensive pool of resources that includes both mentorship and funding. The programme is specifically designed for African students who have a vested interest in social and economic equity, providing a space for them to explore and develop their passions.

About the Atlantic Fellows Programme 2024/2025 For African Students 

The Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity programme is a transformative experience that emphasizes learning, connection, and reflection. For both our residential and non-residential fellows, the fellowship journey begins with an immersive year at the London School of Economics and Political Science, centered around key learning modules. It is an intense and demanding year that requires full commitment from fellows as they join a community that helps to support, challenge, and deepen their learning and practice. The programme will also offer an opportunity for fellows to gain valuable skills in research, communication, and collaboration. Fellows will also be able to attend a limited number of workshops, seminars, and conferences to further expand their knowledge.

The fellowships are available in two fully funded tracks:

  1. Atlantic Residential Fellowship: supports applicants in taking the one-year MSc Inequalities and Social Science (MISS), with dedicated mentorship, as well as engaging with the wider work of the Atlantic Fellows programme (such as the Annual Conference and Non-Residential Fellows activities).
  2. Atlantic Non-Residential Fellowship: a unique opportunity to study via a series of distinct, comprehensive short courses, with both academic and in-the-field work, comprising around seven weeks in total throughout the year. Non-residential Fellows remain based in their home and professional environments and travel to attend the modules. The non-residential fellows will undertake practical project work and contribute to the annual conference and other activities as part of the Atlantic Fellows programme.
