Professional Homes Organized by Members of APA
Who Can Join
APA members and even non-members can apply.
Applicants can join one or more divisions. Each division has their own eligibility criteria and dues. In addition, each division has its own officers, website, publications, email lists, awards, convention activities and meetings.
APA’s 54 divisions are professional homes organized by members.
Some represent subdisciplines of psychology (e.g., experimental, social or clinical) while others focus on topical areas such as aging, ethnic-minorities or trauma.

Become a Fellow
For members interested in advancement of psychology as a science and as a profession
Fellowship is a special distinction for members who have received a doctoral degree in psychology or a related field from a regionally accredited institution and can show evidence of unusual and outstanding contributions in the field of psychology.
Application for fellow status is open to any APA member who meets the criteria of both the sponsoring division and APA. Each division establishes its own criteria for nominations — sometimes the same as APA criteria, but usually involving additional requisites relevant to that division. Each division is responsible for providing the Fellows Committee with updated division criteria.
