Wolfson was the first Cambridge College to admit women as both students and Fellows. Today, after 50 years of Fellowship, you will find leading intellectual authorities across a range of disciplines, from Medieval history to music theory, computer science to communications, neuroscience to nanoscience.

Fellows are actively engaged in College life, joining us for meals and Formal Halls, working from the Fellows' Study in Plommer House, and participating in strategic development, the intellectual and cultural life of the College, and in the learning and teaching of our students. Many of them mentor PhD students through our mentorship program, others organise regular seminars and lectures, and others foster interactions with cultural and research institutions in the UK and overseas, and with philanthropists and charitable foundations.

Above all, our Fellowship supports our core values of academic excellence, respect, diversity and restless curiosity. There are five categories of Fellow at Wolfson College:
