The Learned Society of Wales is a society that exists to “celebrate, recognise, preserve, protect and encourage excellence in all of the scholarly disciplines”.[1]

The society was launched on 25 May 2010 at the National Museum of Wales.[2] It is based in Cardiff.[3]

Fellowship of the society is open to Welsh residents, those born in Wales or otherwise have a particular connection to Wales, who have a "demonstrable record of excellence and achievement" in academia, or who have made a distinguished contribution to knowledge in their professional field.

Fellows of the Learned Society of Wales are entitled to refer to themselves as such and use the initials FLSW after their name. The Society's inaugural President and Chairman of Council is Sir John Cadogan.[4]
