List of fellows of the Royal Society of Arts

William Shipley, founder of the Society in 1754.

Below is a partial list of fellows of the Royal Society of Arts (formally, the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce).[1] A Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts is entitled to use the post-nominal letters FRSA after his or her name.[2]


FellowshipEdit

Admission to the Fellowship is by nomination or application (reviewed by a formal admissions panel).[3] All fellows to be elected to the Fellowship have to demonstrate achievement or potential related to the arts, manufactures and commerce. The RSA Fellowship is an international community of 29,000 (since its founding in 1754) achievers and influencers (as of 2017)[1] from a wide array of backgrounds and professions, who are distinguished by the letters FRSA.

Fellows include social entrepreneurs, scientists, community leaders, commercial innovators, artists, journalists, architects, engineers, and many other occupations.[3]

Charles Dickens, Adam Smith, Benjamin Franklin, Karl Marx, Richard Attenborough, William Hogarth, John Diefenbaker, Stephen Hawking, Benson Taylor and Tim Berners-Lee are some of the notable past and present Fellows, and today it has Fellows elected from 80 countries worldwide.

Major physical meetings of Fellows are held at RSA House, an 18th-century property in London.[4] Regional meetings also take place. The RSA Fellowship maintains a collaborative online presence through the Fellowship's proprietary social network.
