Currently, Fellows of the Institute are exempt from annual fees, as we acknowledge their significant contributions to our community. Moving forward, we are committed to enhancing the expertise of UWI Fellows in their respective fields. Due to the necessary investments in advancing the UWI, we cannot assure that fee exemptions will continue beyond 2025.
Becoming a Fellow of the Institute is an honorary position that includes free membership to the Institute and access to all of our resources, platforms and events.  We also include you in our Fellows Roll of Honour and frequently invite Fellows to appear in speaking and roundtable roles at our events. Fellows will also be invited to events exclusively for the F.UWI community. These events are aimed at giving fellows the opportunity to meet and discuss with other thought leaders and experts in the universal workforce space.
We kindly request that Fellows of the Institute share a profile photo and social links for inclusion in our esteemed Roll of Honour. Additionally, we seek your consent to stay in touch to keep you informed (we will add you to our Friends of the UWI mailing list).  This is how we share updates and news on events, activities, research projects, and speaking opportunities.

A note on The UWI Hub:

The Hub is in the process of being completed, as it stands – you will social features upon sign up. Within the next few weeks the project will be fully realised. Thank you for your patience.
