The AFS Fellows invites nominations for AFS Fellows from any member of AFS. Each nomination must be made by two people, at least one of whom must be a Fellow. A second nominator may be from the general membership. For a description of the AFS Fellows and a list of Fellows, please go to this page on the AFS website. Nominees to the Fellows who were not selected last year will be automatically included on the 2023 slate.

The invitation to any AFS member to be one of the nominators for candidates for the Fellows follows from a bylaws change instituted in 2022. At that time the number of Fellows elected was increased from six to ten. While in the past only Fellows could nominate candidates for the Fellows, under the new rule any AFS member could be one of the nominators for the Fellows. These changes embody the commitment of the Fellows to greater inclusivity, diversity and transparency.

Nominations must include: 

— a letter of support from the two nominators, not to exceed one page

— a two-page cv for the nominee. 

The nomination period for the 2023 election of new Fellows is open from now until 11:59 pm on March 15th. 

While you should identify the nominators in your email to the nominating committee, please do not include the names of nominators on any of the support materials.  Please send these materials as pdfs or word docs, attached to an email, by 11:59 pm on March 15th to Robert Baron, Chair of the AFS Fellows Nominating Committee, [email protected] .
