Nominate GPER members for APS Fellowship by June 1

By Stephanie Chasteen posted 04-25-2022 16:20


As a topical group, GPER is able to nominate 1-3 members annually (number determined annually by APS) to be elected APS Fellows. We would like to collect nominations from the community for potential GPER fellows. 

The criterion for election to fellowship is “exceptional contributions to the physics enterprise.”  Fellowship is a distinct honor signifying recognition by one's professional peers.  More information can be found on the APS Fellows webpage.  

Please submit your nominations using the APS Fellowship Nomination online system prior to June 1, 2022.


  • Nominees must be APS members in good standing.
  • A nomination needs a sponsor AND co-sponsor, with letters of support, and up to two additional letters.
  • You may review the APS fellows web page to see if someone you are planning to nominate is already a fellow through a different APS unit (e.g., through FEd).

We have until June 1st to collect nominations, so please begin your nominating soon. After this time, the GPER Fellowship Committee will begin the evaluation process.

Thank you in advance for your time and effort in preparing these nominations.
