Recognition/Award Menu

Description

IEEE Fellow is a distinction reserved for select IEEE members whose extraordinary accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest are deemed fitting of this prestigious grade elevation.

Prize

Each new Fellow receives a beautifully matted and framed certificate with the name of the Fellow and a brief citation describing the accomplishment, a congratulatory letter from the incoming IEEE president and a gold sterling silver Fellow lapel pin with antique finish.

Historical Background

The grade of Fellow first appeared in the AIEE constitution of 1912. In that year, the AIEE revised its membership structure and established the grade of Fellow for those engineers who had demonstrated outstanding proficiency and had achieved distinction in their profession. Potential Fellows had to be at least thirty-two years of age, with a minimum of ten years' experience. When the IRE established its Fellow grade in 1914, the requirements were clearly modeled on those of the AIEE. Much of the wording in the relevant sections of the IRE constitution is identical to the corresponding wording in the AIEE constitution.

Basis for Judging

The slate of nominees is submitted by the IEEE Fellow Committee to the IEEE Board of Directors during the 3rd quarter, and the Board acts upon those recommendations at its year-end meeting. According to IEEE Bylaw I-305.5, the total number of Fellow recommendations in any one-year must not exceed one-tenth of one percent of the voting membership on record as of 31 December of the year preceding.

Eligibility

The nominee must meet the following three basic qualifications: have accomplishments that have contributed importantly to the advancement or application of engineering, science, and technology, bringing the realization of significant value to society; hold IEEE Senior member or IEEE Life Senior member grade at the time the nomination is submitted; and have been a member in good standing and has completed a minimum of five full years (consecutive or not) of IEEE membership in any grade preceding 1 January of the year of elevation.

Application Details

Nominations are only accepted through the Fellow online system. The nominator must submit a nomination before a reference or endorser can complete the support form.

It is essential that a nominator reads the How to Write an Effective Nomination document (PDF, 228 KB) carefully so that the nomination is not put at risk.

Online Nomination Process/Resources

The nomination cycle for the 2023 Fellow Class will open 15 October 2021.

Please note: The recipients listed on our website include "IEEE Fellows" elevated by UFFC-S. The Society acknowledges that there are additional members of our community that have been elevated by other organizational units of IEEE.
