Nominations Open for Wisconsin Academy Fellows
Do you know someone in your community whose contributions to Wisconsin thought and culture is unparalleled? If so, nominate them to be a Fellow of the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters. Established in 1981, the Fellows Program of the Wisconsin Academy represents the highest level of recognition conferred by our organization. Fellows of the Wisconsin Academy are elected for their high levels of accomplishment in their fields as well as a lifelong commitment to intellectual discourse and public service. These distinguished individuals from a wide range of disciplines and various areas of Wisconsin help us shape our statewide programs and projects.
To be considered, one must have or have had a meaningful relationship with their community and the state of Wisconsin. Candidates for fellowship should be highly esteemed for qualities of judgment, perceptiveness and breadth of knowledge of how literature, art, and science contribute to the cultural life and welfare of the state. Candidates will also have a career marked by an unusually high order of discovery; technological accomplishments; creative productivity in literature, poetry or the fine or practical arts; historical analysis; legal or judicial interpretation; philosophical thinking; or public service.
A Wisconsin Academy committee broadly representative of the sciences, arts and letters recommends candidates to the Wisconsin Academy Council for final selection. The total number of Fellows is limited to one hundred at any time.
To nominate one or more community leaders, download our nomination form. (There are no limits on the number of candidates you can nominate.) The form also shows a list of our current Wisconsin Academy fellows. Nominations are due February 1, 2011.
