APS Fellowship

The APS Fellowship Program was created to recognize members who may have made advances in knowledge through original research and publication or made significant and innovative contributions in the application of physics to science and technology. They may also have made significant contributions to the teaching of physics or service and participation in the activities of the Society. Each year, no more than one-half of one percent of the then current membership of the Society are recognized by their peers for election to the status of Fellow in The American Physical Society.

Fellowship nominations may be submitted by anyone who is a member of the APS in good standing. All members of DPP are strongly encouraged to nominate colleagues whom they consider worthy of this recognition. See the Fellowship nomination information page for guidance on submitting nominations.
