The Fellowship is a global network of nearly 30,000 Fellows who support the RSA's mission to enrich society through ideas and action.
Fellows have access to the brightest new ideas, innovative projects, a diverse network of like-minded people and a platform for social change.
If you are committed to supporting the mission of the RSA then we want to hear from you.
why should you become a fellow?
You share our values
Our mission is to create the conditions for the enlightened thinking and collaborative action needed to address today’s most pressing social challenges.
At the heart of the RSA is an international community of nearly 30,000 Fellows, a Fellowship, with the shared values of creativity, inclusivity and responsibility.
You support our approach
The power to create is the ability to turn your ideas and aspirations into reality.
The rapid pace of change in society, politics and technology means that, for the first time, millions of people around the world now have the tools and the resources to do this.
This approach – the Power to Create - informs all of our work.
You are inspired by the brightest ideas
Through our unique Fellowship network new ideas from the RSA and around the world are made available to all.
Fellows have access to original articles from some of the world’s greatest thinkers in the award-winning RSA Journal and they stay up to date with the latest RSA news, research and projects through regular communications.
It's great to be part of an organisation that thinks outside the box using some of the tools of the 21st Century - research, development and modern technology - to develop solutions for our global family.
You want to develop solutions to social challenges
A growing number of Fellows are working together on projects which are having real-world impact, supported by funding and expertise from RSA Catalyst.
The Catalyst programme provides small grants to support new ideas, connects project leaders with expertise from within the Fellowship and offers advice about running crowdfunding campaigns.
You want to engage with our work
We are developing new opportunities for Fellows to engage with the RSA's Action and Research Centre to help drive forward our mission.
We support and encourage Fellows who want to setup complementary projects, contribute articles to our online platform, and run events which build momentum around ideas that are central to our work.
You want a home for enlightened thinking
While Fellows meet all over the world, RSA House in London is the historic residence of the RSA where Fellows can meet, work, think and be inspired.
The House features wifi throughout, a restaurant, bar, breakout spaces and a library. If you would like a tour of the House just let us know and we will arrange this for you.
The RSA is a place I have always respected because of the amazing history and because it welcomes young creative people from all round the world.
