Information for the 2022 AAAS Fellows Cycle
The Executive Office invites groups of three previously elected AAAS Fellows in good standing to nominate eligible AAAS members for election as Fellows. The 2022 Fellows nomination cycle is currently open, and the deadline is April 20, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern time.
A member whose efforts on behalf of the advancement of science or its applications are scientifically or socially distinguished and who has been a continuous member for the four-year period leading up to the year of nomination, may, by virtue of such meritorious contribution be elected a Fellow by the Council.
Examples of areas in which nominees may have made significant contributions are research; teaching; technology; services to professional societies; administration in academe, industry, and government; and communicating and interpreting science to the public. Fellows are elected annually by the AAAS Council from the list of approved nominations from the Section Steering Groups. AAAS encourages diverse nominations that include a fair representation of women, minorities and persons with disabilities. Fellows are expected to uphold the commonly held standards of professional ethics and scientific integrity.
IMPORTANT NOTE: AAAS will only accept nominations through our online submission portal. We will no longer accept mailed or emailed nomination materials.
