RSE Fellows have a fundamental role to play in enabling the RSE to deliver on its mission of ‘Knowledge made Useful’ and acceptance of Fellowship implies a strong commitment to the objectives of the RSE (to inspire, engage, provide expertise and promote) and a willingness to devote time and effort to its work whether at a local, national or international level.
We have around 1600 Fellows. The Fellowship is split into four broad sectors, covering the full range of physical and life sciences, arts, humanities, social sciences, education, professions, industry, business and public life. This range of expertise within the Fellowship means that we are well-placed to respond to and provide advice on a wide range of issues.
There are three key criteria against which candidates will be assessed and which demonstrate the excellence we seek. These are:
- Outstanding achievement;
- Professional standing and;
- Societal contribution.
