Funded by commitments totaling more than $660 million from Atlantic through one of its final “big bets” before the foundation brought its grant making to an end in 2016, the fellows programs support efforts to advance fairer, healthier, and more inclusive societies around the globe. Launched individually between 2015 and 2018, the seven programs include the Atlantic Fellows for Equity in Brain Health, based at the Global Brain Health Institute at Trinity College Dublin and the University of California, San Francisco; the Atlantic Fellows for Health Equity in Southeast Asia, based at the Equity Initiative at the China Medical Board in Bangkok; the Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity, based at the International Inequalities Institute at the London School of Economics and Political Science; the Atlantic Fellows for Health Equity in South Africa, based at TEKANO; the Atlantic Fellows for Social Equity, based at the University of Melbourne; the Atlantic Fellows for Racial Equity, based at Columbia University in New York City and the Nelson Mandela Foundation in Johannesburg; and the Atlantic Fellows for Health Equity, based at the George Washington University Health Workforce Institute. The Atlantic Institute, based at the Rhodes Trust at Oxford University, brings together fellows from all seven programs and provides them with a lifelong resource for collaboration.  [Read full article here]
