Beginning with the 2010 Fellows, nominations will be submitted online. To access the nomination form, please click here.

Please be aware that changes have been made to the nominations procedures for Fellows, effective 2010. The maximum number of support letters that may be submitted is now four (previously, up to six letters were allowed). Also, VERY IMPORTANT, individuals are limited to direct participation in at most two candidates' nominations per year. Direct participation includes serving as nominator or writing a letter of support. Thus, for example, an individual may write letters of support for two candidates, or serve as nominator for one candidate and write a support letter for another candidate. Indirect participation, through the encouragement of other to nominate people or to write supporting letters, is not limited, and indeed Fellows are encouraged to urge others to nominate potential Fellows.

The deadline for nominating a Fellow is 3:00 am EST on Tuesday, March 1, 2016. To be eligible for nomination, a person must be a current member of the ASA who has had continuous membership from March 1, 2013, to February 28, 2016. Members who are already Fellows are not eligible.
