Become a Fellow
Types of fellows

There are two ways to fellow status in the division: 

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

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

Current fellows are good resources for information about being and becoming a fellow. Letters from current fellows are also required for those applying for New Fellow status.

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.

Division 35 Fellow Criteria

FellowsDivision 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

Applicants for new fellow status in Division 35 should obtain information and forms from the Chair of the Division Fellows Committee. Nominees must send their applications to the fellows chair by the set deadline, which is published on the website and in the division newsletter in the fall. These candidates' applications are evaluated by the Division Committee; those receiving a positive recommendation will have their applications reviewed by the APA Fellows Committee. Fellow status is granted by the APA Fellows Committee. This year's deadline for receipt of applications is Jan. 4, 2014.

Current Fellows Application Process

Current Fellows of APA from other divisions may apply for Division 35 status by sending a current c.v., plus a letter highlighting the reasons that  one has met the criteria for fellow status in the Division. These candidates' applications are evaluated by  the Division Committee only. The due date for these applications is March 31, 2014. Current Fellows may send their applications via email to the Fellows Committee Chair.

How to Apply

Applications for new fellow status in Division 35 require letters from three current Division 35 fellows, as well as other materials that are supplied or explained in the application packet. Application packets (including required forms for the applicant to send to her or his recommenders) are available from the Division 35 Fellows chair. All the forms for the APA Nominiation and Election can be found on APA fellows.
