Fellows who are current members of AAAS are invited to nominate members for election as Fellows. A member whose ef orts on behalf of the advancement of science or its applications are scientifically or socially distinguished, and who has been a continuous member for the four-year period leading up to the year of nomination, may by virtue of such meritorious contribution be elected a Fellow by the AAAS Council.

A nomination must be sponsored by three previously elected AAAS Fellows (who are current in their membership), two of whom must have no af liation with the nominee's institution. Nominations undergo review by the steering groups of the Association's sections (the chair, chair-elect, retiring chair, secretary, and four members-at-large of each section). Each steering group reviews only those nominations designated for its section.

Names of Fellow nominees who are approved by the steering groups are presented to the Council in the fall for election.

Nominations with complete documentation must be received by 26 April 2017. Nominations received after that date or nominations that are incomplete as of the deadline will not move forward. Complete instructions and a copy of the nomination form are available at www.aaas.org/current-nomination-cycle. Questions may be directed to fellownomination@aaas.org.
