Members of Div. 3 who are APA members but not yet fellows of APA may apply for fellow status in Div. 3. These are known as “new fellow” applications, and applicants must meet both APA criteria and Div. 3 criteria (PDF, 7KB).
In addition to meeting the eligibility criteria, applications for new fellow status require letters of endorsement from three current Div. 3 fellows. Applications also require a detailed statement indicating specifically how the applicant meets both the APA and Div. 3 Fellow criteria and completion of other information as required in the application platform. Visit the APA fellows webpage for more information and access to the online system.
Applications to be a new APA fellow are submitted online through the APA fellows online application platform. This system will allow nominees, endorsers and division fellows chairs to submit all required documents online. Applications will not be considered unless they are submitted through this system.
All materials, including letters of endorsement, must be submitted through the online platform by Dec. 1, 2019. Important to note is that applicants will have to enter the names and contact information of their endorsers in advance of that date so that endorsers can submit their letters of recommendation by this date. It is recommended that this endorser information be entered before Nov. 1, 2019.
The candidates’ applications are reviewed by the Div. 3 Fellows Committee. Those 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.
