How to organize a new Rotary Fellowship?
Forming a new Rotary Fellowship takes a lot of work, but as Rotarians who have established a group will attest, the effort is worthwhile. Before submitting a proposal, plan to develop a strong network of prospective members in at least three countries. You can start by posting your idea on the list of Suggested Rotary Fellowships.
While Rotary Fellowships operate independently of Rotary International, they must receive official recognition from RI’s Board of Directors and operate in accordance with Rotary policy. If you are interested in organizing a prospective Rotary Fellowship, please contact RI staff for guidance.
