Who is in the RSA Fellow network?
The RSA Fellow network is a powerful one. There are over 28,000 people around the globe who are part of creating the conditions for social change, not just amongst our diverse Fellowship, but also in the institutions and communities they represent.
Past Fellows have included Benjamin Franklin, Karl Marx, Marie Curie and Charles Dickens. While many Fellows have achieved recognition for their contribution in a particular field, this it is not the defining criterion for becoming a Fellow. Our ethos is inclusive. We value all who positively impact society.
