Fellow status is reserved for members who have made significant and sustained contributions to scholarship (research, creative, or scholarly activity) and related service in the areas of concern to AAHPERD. The purpose of Fellow status is to promote scholarship as an integral component of AAHPERD as well as to:
Current/active Research Fellows nominate AAHPERD members for Fellow status. Members interested in being nominated should consult the Fellows list below to identify and contact a Fellow who may be able to serve as a nominator. Note that most, but not all Fellows have opted to be included in the online listing. Please consult the Research Director at: firstname.lastname@example.org, should you have any question about a member being a Fellow who is not listed via the link below.
Nominees for Fellow status must demonstrate a commitment either to a prominent role in scholarship over the course of their careers or to excellence in research within the past five years.
Timeline: Nomination materials are due no later than Monday, December 2, 2013. Nominees are notified of review outcome in early February.
Induction: Nominees recommended by the Research Credentials Committee for advancement to Fellow are inducted at the AAHPERD National Convention. Attendance at the induction ceremony is a requirement for nominees who are accepted as candidates.
Nomination Materials: It is recommended that nominating Fellows review the Criteria and Selection Information with their nominee. There are three nomination forms, one used by the majority of nominees who have published their work in peer-reviewed journals and presented in oral and/or poster format within the past five years. A second form is for senior scholars which is defined as an individual who has achieved the rank of full professor and has, as reflected on their vita, exceeded the minimum criteria but not necessarily within the five year time frame. A third form is for scholars in the area of dance choreography.
NOTE: Nomination materials can be prepared in collaboration between the nominating Fellow and the nominee, and should be submitted to AAHPERD by the nominating Fellow. Recommendation to Fellow status shall follow a favorable vote of a simple majority of members of the Credentials Committee. The final recommendation for advancement to Fellow status by the Credentials Committee is determined by review of the above listed criteria and the overall quality of the scholarship and service. Meeting minimum requirements does not guarantee acceptance.
