Nominate a Colleague For IEEE Fellow

If you are considering nominating a colleague from industry, government, or academia for elevation to IEEE Fellow grade, the opportunity to do so is now. This prestigious 46 year old group now numbers over 6000. These Fellows are the visionaries, the dreamers, the pioneers, and technology leaders in their field as well influential members in the international technology community.

IEEE Senior members or IEEE Life Senior members in good standing, who have completed five years of service in any grade of IEEE Membership and who have made an outstanding contribution to the electronic or electrical engineering profession may be nominated in one of four categories: application engineer/practitioner, educator, research engineer/scientist, or technical leader. The IEEE Fellow web site,, has all the information you will need including the requirements for nominee eligibility as well as nomination instructions and all the necessary forms. The nomination period is presently open and will continue through 1 March 2011 for the Class of 2012.

You are strongly encouraged to read the information on “Before Submitting Your Fellow Nomination” and then use the Online Application process which is quick and easy. Once you have started the application, it can be held in Draft status until you have completed the entire form and are ready to send the information to us. Once you have submitted the application, the electronic process will automatically send emails to your references and endorsers and provide the means for you to track their status. Also once you have submitted the nomination, no changes for whatever reason can be made which is why we encourage you to put the maximum number of references on the form and find out if they are willing to help you with the submission before sending the nomination.

The IEEE Fellow Staff is working to make your nomination process as trouble free as possible and they are ready to assist with all phases of the application process. Should you have any question during the completion process you can email fellows AT with any questions.
