Elected Fellows of the Royal Society of Victoria

In 1994, the Council of the Royal Society of Victoria inaugurated a Fellowship program to recognise those who have made an outstanding and widely-recognised contribution to science and technology in Victoria. In 2017, the RSV Fellowship was reframed around “an outstanding contribution to science and the Australian science community.”
