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.


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.
