The Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts & Letters will soon announce our 2024 Academy Fellows Awards, recognizing outstanding Wisconsinites who have shown extraordinary levels of accomplishment in their careers, as well as a lifelong commitment to intellectual discourse and public service. The honorees will receive their awards at a ceremony in September of 2024.
Every other year, the Wisconsin Academy Fellows Award recognizes researchers, mentors, artists, educators, and civic or business leaders from across Wisconsin. Being selected as a Fellow is the highest recognition conferred by the Wisconsin Academy. Fellows are honored for demonstrating exemplary levels of artistic, scientific, written (letters*) and service accomplishments, or a cross-disciplinary combination of these, in their careers; and for their dedication to civil discourse and public service that benefits the wellbeing of the people of Wisconsin.
*The letters category is broadly defined and meant to include writers, poets, storytellers, historians, lawyers, philosophers, and those who study or apply language to inform, inspire, or communicate ideas with others.
