Become a Fellow
Fellowship is a special distinction for members who have received a doctoral degree in psychology or a related field from a regionally accredited institution and can show evidence of unusual and outstanding contributions in the field of psychology.
Application for fellow status is open to any APA member who meets the criteria of both the sponsoring division and APA. Each division establishes its own criteria for nominations — sometimes the same as APA criteria, but usually involving additional requisites relevant to that division. Each division is responsible for providing the Fellows Committee with updated division criteria.
How to become a fellow
The divisions have created programs and highlights to help you navigate official programming and social events. You can also visit the Division Services booth at convention in the APA Member Resources Area. In the booth you can pick up division ribbons to wear on your name badge, join divisions onsite, enter our raffles for prizes, get the location of division hospitality suites, and talk with leaders of the divisions face to face. Follow @APA_Divisions and use the convention hashtag, #APA2017.
