The Atlantic Residential Fellowship

Supporting 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).

The Fellowship will cover all of your fees, a stipend of £15,000 p/a and expenses for attendance at Atlantic Fellowship events.

The Atlantic Non-Residential Fellowship

Offering applicants 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. Elements of the course will be undertaken with our Node Partner, University of Cape Town. In addition 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.

The Non-Residential Fellowships are fully funded, with travel and accommodation costs covered where necessary, as well as reasonable daily expenses whilst taking part in the courses.

The Atlantic Visiting Fellowship

A fantastic opportunity for teams of three or four senior academics and practitioners to come together and undertake an intensive period of research that will create high profile advances in both academic understanding and in, developing practical responses to, the challenge of inequality.

The teams will be fully-funded, including reasonable travel, accommodation in London where needed and office space within the International Inequalities Institute along with other reasonable research costs.


Building a network

Creating long-lasting impact, each of the tracks will come together to form an ongoing community of Fellows who will be able to support one another after the conclusion of their Fellowships, offering advice to the network of Fellow, collaborating on future work and leading the way in challenging inequalities. Furthermore the Fellows will be a part of the wider Atlantic Fellows programme, bringing insights, expertise and collaboration from diverse regions and academic disciplines to tackle the greater challenges facing the world today. 

The Action for Equity Award

The Action for Equity Award from the International Inequalities Institute will recognise and reward the crucial work being advanced by civic organisations to combat inequalities around the world. Offering GBP 50,000 to support the winning organisation’s ongoing activities, the award will link the Atlantic Fellows network with dynamic and innovative organisations leading the fight for equity.
