World Fellow – Dukeofed
World Fellow

World Fellow

The World Fellowship aims to provide a stable financial foundation for the development of the International Award throughout the world. Through its support, the World Fellowship enables more young people, particularly those in less prosperous circumstances, to benefit from participating in the International Award Program.

The World Fellowship was created in 1987 to fund the work of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award International Association. There are over 300 Benefactors, Fellows, Young Fellows and members around the world, personal and corporate, who play a vital part in helping more young people to benefit from participating in the Award particularly those growing up in less prosperous countries with few other opportunities of acquiring employable skills.

The World Fellowship is a unique, high-level global network that brings together Benefactors, Fellows, Young Fellows and Members at Royal events and meetings around the world, including the World Fellowship Anniversary Dinner normally held in a London palace every June.

When an Australian commits to becoming a World Fellow they can advise the International Award Association of their wish to allocate 50% of donation to the Award in Australia.
