About Atlantic Fellows For Social Equity

The Atlantic Fellows for Social Equity is an Indigenous-led lifelong, collaborative fellowship program and platform for driving systemic change. Established at the University of Melbourne in 2017 and funded by The Atlantic Philanthropies in 2016, it is one of seven global, interconnected Atlantic Fellows programs.

The AFSE year-long fellowship program comprises five intensive residential modules, preceded by orientation and induction modules, and a social change project led by Fellows.
