Science Museum Fellows

The Science Museum Fellowship award recognises individuals who have contributed to the world of science and had an exceptional influence on modern culture.

In 2009, as part of the Museum’s centenary celebrations, we launched the Science Museum Fellows Programme to recognise some of the scientists and individuals who have changed our world through academic research, design, technology and philanthropy.

Every year we invite selected individuals to join the programme and become Fellows of the Science Museum.
