Become a fellow of Div. 35. The Div. 35 Fellows Committee is seeking nominations and applications for fellow status in the division. Self-nominations are welcome.

Become a Fellow
Types of fellows

There are two ways to fellow status in the division: 

  • First, members of Div. 35 who are APA members, but are not fellows of APA, may apply for fellow status in Div. 35. They are known as "new fellow" applicants and must meet both APA criteria and Div. 35 criteria for fellow status.

  • Second, any member of Div. 35 who is already a fellow of APA may apply to become a fellow of Div. 35. These applicants are known as "current fellows." Current fellows are only evaluated by the division Fellows Committee.

Div. 35 fellows are good sources of information about applying for fellow and may be asked to write letters of endorsements for application for Div. 35 fellowships. You can find a list of Div. 35 fellows under the "Current Fellows" tab.

APA Fellow Criteria
  • Five years of acceptable professional experience beyond receipt of the doctoral degree.

  • Membership in APA for at least one year.

  • Unusual and outstanding contributions that have had national or international impact in psychology.

Div. 35 Fellow Criteria

Div. 35 requires evidence of outstanding and unusual contributions (PDF, 29KB) that have had national or international impact in the psychology of women. "Unusual and outstanding contributions" with respect to scholarly publications, for example, should include evidence of citations. Leadership in Division 35 and other psychological associations are also relevant. In either case, evidence of accumulation of impact and performance over time is required.

New Fellows Application Process

The process to apply to be an APA fellow is done via the APA Fellows Online Application Platform. This system allows nominees, endorsers and division fellows chairs to submit all required documents online.

The online system replaces the previous, paper-based process and all candidates’ applications must be added to the system to be considered by the Fellows Committee. Applications for new fellow status require letters from three current Div. 35 fellows and completion of other materials described in the APA Fellows Online Application Platform. Please visit the APA fellows Web page for more information and to access the online system. 

All materials, including letters of reference, must be completed by Jan. 9, 2016. The candidates’ applications are reviewed by the division Fellows Committee. Applications receiving a positive recommendation will be forwarded to the APA Fellows Committee for their review. Fellow status is granted by the APA Fellows Committee. Please remember that there can only be one nominating division.

Current Fellows Application Process

Current fellows of APA from other divisions may apply for Div. 35 fellow status by sending a current vita and a letter highlighting the reasons that one has met the criteria for fellow status in the division. These candidates’ applications must be emailed to Silvia Sara Canetto. The due date for current fellows applications is March 31, 2016. Current fellows applications are evaluated by the Div. 35 Fellows Committee only.
