Nominate a Fellow

Do you know someone who has made a significant contribution to the state of Wisconsin?


Give them the recognition they deserve with a Wisconsin Academy Fellow Award.

Being selected as a Fellow is the highest recognition conferred by the Wisconsin Academy. Fellows are honored for demonstrating the highest levels of artistic, scientific, written (letters*) and service accomplishments, or some cross-disciplinary combination of these in their careers; and for their dedication to respectful/civil discourse and public service that benefits the wellbeing of the people of Wisconsin.

Nominations for the Wisconsin Academy Fellow Awards are accepted by filling out an online form and or sending a completed PDF form via email to Nominees are usually reviewed biennially by a panel of current Fellows and Academy Board members before approval by the full Wisconsin Academy Board.  Each nomination is eligible for consideration in two consecutive selection processes. (i.e., New 2023, or nominations submitted after 2020 will be eligible for consideration and induction in the Spring of 2024.) Nominators may update/revise materials before the next selection process, which will begin on December 1st, 2023, but it is not required for reconsideration of a candidate. If not selected after two consecutive cycles, candidates will need to be re-nominated for full consideration.
