Awards

Paul Harris Fellows

The Rotary movement was founded in February 1905 by Paul Harris, a lawyer from Chicago, who recognized the potential of an association of like-minded professional and business people who could meet and share common interests on a regular basis.

In 1957, the Rotary Foundation launched the Paul Harris Fellowship in memory of the founder as an expression of appreciation for those who have contributed to the Foundation’s humanitarian and educational programs.

A contribution of US $1,000.00 is made to the Rotary Foundation in the name of each individual to be honoured. The recipients receive a pin, medallion and certificate that identify them as advocates of the Foundation’s goals of world peace and understanding.

After more than forty years, recognition as a Paul Harris Fellow remains a respected and prestigious honour for Rotarians and non-Rotarians alike.
