Distinguished Fellowship Award


Inaugurated in 1996, a distinguished fellowship is the recognition of highly distinguished contributions to the profession in academia, government or industry and the RACI and is awarded on, or very close to, retirement from the candidate’s principal professional role. Distinguished Fellowships do not carry financial or post-nominal implications. Rarely would there be more than three Distinguished Fellowships awarded per year.

 

Award Entry Requirements


This award requires nomination by the Board, Branch or Divisional Committee of the RACI. The candidate is required to be a Fellow of the RACI with a minimum membership of 5 years.


Nominations


Nominations open in April and close mid June. The nomination requirement is a citation identifying reasons for the recommendation, highlights of the service to the RACI since admittance as a Fellow and highlights of the professional career of the nominee since admittance as a Fellow and highlights of the professional career of the nominee since admittance as a Fellow.

If in the opinion of the  Board there is no candidate who has sufficient merit, the Board may refrain from making an award.
The decision of the judges will be subject to the approval of the RACI Board. The Board decision is final and no discussions or correspondence will be entered into.
