Fellows Eligibility


Eligibility for Nominees

  • Any current regular member of SIAM who has been a regular member of SIAM for at least seven of the past ten years (84 of the past 120 months, not necessarily consecutive) is eligible to be nominated to be a SIAM Fellow. For these purposes, a regular member is defined as a non-student, dues-paying member. 
  • Retired former SIAM members are eligible for nomination if they had been a regular member of SIAM for seven of the ten years prior to their retirement. 
  • A nominee is expected to have been a member of the profession for at least 15 years. In most cases, this will be interpreted to mean 15 years from PhD. 
  • SIAM Presidents will automatically become Fellows upon election, if they are not Fellows already. 
  • Members of the SIAM Major Awards Committee may not be nominated to be SIAM Fellows while in office.

Eligibility of Nominators

  • Current non-student members may nominate up to two colleagues per year for Fellow. This limit does not include nominations from prior years. 
  • Members of the Major Awards Committee and Fellows Selection Committee are not eligible to serve as nominators.

Eligibility for Letter Writers

  • Letters of recommendation can be written by non-members. 
  • Members of the Major Awards Committee and Fellows Selection Committee are not eligible to contribute letters of recommendation. 
  • A nominator cannot contribute letters of recommendation for his or her nominee. The letter of nomination is intended to be from the three nominators. 
  • There is no yearly limit on the number of letters of recommendations one may contribute.
