The deadline for applications to the 2019-20 Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity programme is 20 November 2018. Please help us spread the news about this programme, which brings activists and social change leaders from around the world to LSE’s International Inequalities Institute. (See below for easily shareable info)
The Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity programme allows fellows to work with leading scholars, practitioners and civil society organisations. In its first two years, AFSEE has brought together 40 change-makers from Africa, Asia, Oceania, Europe and North and South America. Most AFSEE participants have not previously had access to a major fellowship or scholarship, and all have spent seven to ten years fighting inequality in fields such as human rights, environmental activism, community and labour organising, transparency and governance, gender and disability rights, civic and democratic engagement, journalism, public health, social policy and peace and reconciliation.
The programme has both residential and non-residential tracks, with residential fellows completing the LSE’s MSc in Inequalities and Social Science, and non-residential fellows participating in four AFSEE modules in London and Cape Town over one year. AFSEE is one of seven Atlantic Fellows programmes worldwide, and is supported by The Atlantic Philanthropies via a 20-year grant that will fund the creation of a 600-strong cohort of lifelong fellows.

Announcing the Boise State University Anthropology Department
The Department of Anthropology at Boise State University values diversity and is committed to building a more diverse and inclusive presence for tomorrow’s professionals in the discipline. We are pleased to announce our Graduate Fellowship in Diversity and Inclusion for Academic Year 2019-20. Our Master’s program in Anthropology welcomes applications from prospective domestic graduate students, who identify in traditionally underrepresented groups (specifically Black/African American, Hispanic American, American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, or Native Pacific Islander, per the Graduate College at Boise State University).
Why choose Boise State Anthropology? Please read on!
Boise State Anthropology is a regional hub for evolutionary anthropology where students pursue original research in archaeology, biological anthropology, and human behavioral ecology.
Our student project opportunities include fieldwork in global settings including Africa and Asia, analyzing large scale national and international datasets, analysis of skeletal remains, and archaeological investigations across the Northwest, among others.
The Graduate Fellowship in Diversity and Inclusion provides full financial support, including a $15,000 per year stipend, registration fees, out-of-state tuition waiver, and health insurance. The awardee is eligible for two years of support pursuant to satisfactory progress.
Pursue one of two options designed to maximize your competitiveness in the field through
building strong scientific and methodological expertise.
- A thesis-based Master’s degree in Anthropology (Masters of Arts) with a focus on human behavioral ecology or archaeology that prepares you for future Ph.D. level research. With an M.A. in Anthropology, students have the option of applying for the Ph.D. in Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior at Boise State University.
- A project-based Master’s degree in Applied Anthropology that builds scientific archaeology and management expertise for marketability in the public and private cultural resources management sectors.
Our Record of Success.
Our graduates are employed across the country in the federal sector as cultural resource managers, as experts in non-governmental organizations worldwide, as instructors in higher education, and in private industry. Boise State Anthropology students also pursue PhD research nationwide.
