The Melvin Jones Fellowship

The Melvin Jones Fellowship is recognition of a commitment to humanitarian work. It is not an award in the tradition of Lions awards presented for specific accomplishments. The fellowship is the Lions Clubs International Foundation's highest honor and represents humanitarian qualities such as generosity, compassion, and concern for the less fortunate. Melvin Jones Fellows receive a lapel pin and a personalized wall plaque in honor of their commitment to helping others.

Created in 1973, the fellowship is named for the founder of Lions Clubs International, Melvin Jones.
The fellowship is not limited to Lions clubs members. It is open to non-Lions to whom identical recognition is presented.

A club receives a Melvin Jones Fellow banner patch and chevron for the first member to receive MJF recognition. For each subsequent year a member is inducted as a fellow, the club receives a chevron. When all current club members are Melvin Jones Fellows, the club receives a 100 % Melvin Jones Fellowship banner. In addition, a Certificate of Distinction is presented to a club representative at the Lions Clubs International Convention.
