The London School of Economics and Political Science offers the Atlantic Fellows Masters for Social and Economic Equity programme in the 2021/22 academic session.

This is a fully-funded fellowship based at the International Inequalities Institute at the London School of Economics and Political Science. It is one of seven interconnected Atlantic Fellowships worldwide.

Qualified candidates are expected to be bold and ready to challenge power; see the bigger picture of how inequalities are playing out; are imaginative and daring in the way they envision solutions; who bring care and collaboration into their practice; recognize the significance of the lived experience of inequality, and whose lived experience informs their practice; who focus on not advancing their careers but on their commitment to changing the world through collective and collaborative approaches.
