New Fellows Nominations

Call for new fellows nominations

Div. 28 is seeking nominations for new fellows.

By Matthew Johnson, PhD

Div. 28 is seeking nominations for new fellows. As described by APA, “Fellow status is an honor bestowed upon APA members who have shown evidence of unusual and outstanding contributions or performance in the field of psychology. Fellow status requires that a person's work has had a national impact on the field of psychology beyond a local, state or regional level. A high level of competence or steady and continuing contributions are not sufficient to warrant fellow status. National impact must be demonstrated.”

In Div. 28 a successful nominee will typically be 10-15 years postdoctorate, have a minimum of 30 publications and a track record of external funding, and can document national impact of her or his research.

If you would like to nominate a colleague for consideration for fellow status, please send her or his CV and contact information to the address below. You may also nominate somebody who is already an APA fellow (with relevance to our division), but who is not yet a fellow of Div. 28. Self-nominations are also welcomed.
