Find out about Fellowship

Support the mission of the RSA

The Fellowship is a global network of 30,000 people who support the RSA’s mission to enrich society through ideas and action.

Why should you become a Fellow of the RSA?

You share RSA values

RSA’s 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 30,000 like-minded people, a Fellowship, with the shared values of creativity, inclusivity and responsibility.

You support the RSA 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 the RSA work.

You are inspired by the brightest ideas

Through the 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.

RSA Academies governor, staff and alumni discount

There’s a very special opportunity if you are a staff member or governor at an RSA school.  You are entitled to complete a fast-track application form and can take advantage of a permanent 75% reduction on the Fellowship fee and no joining fee. The annual cost of Fellowship is £182 so this has been reduced to £45.50 which is only £3.79 a month by direct debit. 

We want our schools to grow their alumni networks & connect to the RSA Fellowship. If you are an alumni of an RSA Academies schoool you are also eligible to receive a 75% discounted Fellowship fee (£3.79pcm) for the first three years of their membership. Connect to the Fellowship and give back to your school as an FRSA.
