Action for Equity Award 2018 for South African Civic Organizations ( £50,000 grant)

Application Deadline: 31st March 2018

The Action for Equity Award is an exciting new prize which aims to recognise and reward the crucial work being advanced by civic organisations to combat inequalities around the world.

The Action for Equity Award also aims to extend the reach and impact of the Atlantic Fellows programme for Social and Economic Equity, which supports dynamic emerging leaders from academia and the third sector, campaign or policy-making organisations to explore the causes of inequalities.


  • The prize will celebrate the excellent work which has been achieved by smaller teams and will provide £50,000 (or roughly 800,000 SAR) toward the winning organisation’s ongoing activities. Moreover, award winners will contribute to the Atlantic Fellows programme at LSE.
