Fellow status is the highest honor MPA can award a member. Selection requires evidence of significant contributions to the discipline of psychology and/or service to MPA in terms of scholarship, productivity, leadership, and visibility. Fellow status also requires at least three years of MPA membership and at least five years of experience subsequent to the doctoral degree. Fellow selection is made annually by a committee including the President-elect, current President, and past President of MPA.
If you know of an MPA member who you think deserves Fellow status, please wait for the Call for Fellows Announcement in January before the conference or email the MPA Executive Officer to inquire about how to nominate someone (which will require a CV for the applicant). MPA is also happy to accept self-nominations for fellows.
