APS Fellow Nominations

About Fellow Status | Recent Fellows | All Fellows

APS Members may nominate another APS Member for Fellow status at any time. Candidates will be considered after 10 years of postdoctoral contribution. A committee consisting of APS Fellows from the diverse sub-disciplines of psychology reviews nominations. The APS Board of Directors votes on committee recommendations twice a year. The committee will notify nominators of the results.

Please consider the diverse and international nature of our field in nominating colleagues. Nominations of members of underrepresented groups in psychological science are encouraged.

The nomination materials should include the following:

  • APS Fellow Nomination Form
  • A 1-2 page letter of nomination specifying why the candidate is judged to have made sustained outstanding contributions to the field of psychological science.
  • Nominee’s current curriculum vitae
  • Two additional 1-2-page letters of support from outstanding contributors to scientific psychology familiar with the nominee’s work, one of whom must be an APS Fellow. (Three total letters should be submitted: one letter of nomination and two letters of support.) Please do not submit more than two letters of support.

The Fall review deadline is October 15, and the Spring Review Deadline is April 1.
