The American Chemical Society (ACS) Fellows Program is now accepting nominations for 2017 ACS Fellows. The selection of ACS Fellows is based on two criteria:
- Documented excellence and leadership that has an impact in the science, the profession, education, and/or management; and
- Documented excellence and leadership in volunteer service, based on specific results achieved, in service to the ACS and its membership and community.
Nominees and nominators must be current members (including retired and emeritus members) in good standing of the ACS. Former members or deceased members will not be considered as nominees. Current members of the ACS Fellows Selection Committee, ACS Fellows Oversight Committee, ACS Board of Directors, and current ACS staff are not eligible to be nominees or nominators.
Nominations are solicited from ACS National Committees, Local Sections, and Divisions, as well as from individual members. Self-nominations are not accepted. Each nomination requires a primary nominator and two secondary nominators, each of whom must provide a letter of recommendation. The online nomination form also requires the following nominee information: Code of Conduct, Award Citations, Professional Organization Affiliations, Volunteer Service to the ACS Community, Contributions to the Science/Profession, Honors and Awards, and Resume/CV. The Primary Nominator is responsible for submitting the nomination.
Detailed guidelines and instructions for submitting nominations are at www.acs.org/fellows. The deadline for nominations is April 6, 2017 [11:59 PDT].
ACS looks forward to receiving your nominations and the opportunity to recognize our members who are making an impact.
