The ASC Fellows Committee invites nominations for Fellows in the Society. The title of "Fellow" is given to those members of the Society in good standing who have achieved distinction in criminology. The honorary title "Fellow" recognizes persons who have made a scholarly contribution to the intellectual life of the discipline, whether in the form of a singular, major piece of scholarship or cumulative scholarly contributions. Longevity alone is not sufficient. In addition, a Fellow must have made a significant contribution to the field through the career development of other criminologists and/or through organizational activities within the ASC.

The names of those who have been awarded the Fellow status will be announced at the Annual Meeting and the candidates will be acknowledged by the Society with the presentation of a certificate.

In your nominating letter, please describe the reasons for your nomination and include a copy of the nominee's curriculum vitae (or make arrangements to have it sent to the Committee Chair). Please limit nominations to a single cover letter and the nominee's curriculum vitae. All materials should be submitted in electronic format. The Board may elect up to four (4) persons as Fellows annually.

Large letter-writing campaigns do not benefit nominees and unnecessarily burden the Committee. Award decisions will be based on the strength of the nominees' qualifications and not on the number of nomination endorsements received for any particular candidate.

Current members of the ASC Board are ineligible to receive this award. 

Nomination materials should be submitted by March 1, 2019 to:

Fellows Committee Chair
Ruth Peterson

The Executive Board may decide not to give the award in any given year. Award decisions will be based on the strength of the nominees' qualifications and not on the number of nomination endorsements received for any particular candidate.
