Nomination for APA or APS Fellowship
Election as a SIOP Fellow does NOT automatically make the new SIOP Fellow an APA Fellow. As a part of their SIOP Fellow applications, SIOP Fellow candidates elected as SIOP Fellows who are also members of APA and/or APS in good standing may choose to be considered also for Fellowship in APA and/or APS. If SIOP endorses their application, SIOP will forward its recommendation to APS as requested. New in 2013, it is the responsibility of the newly elected SIOP Fellow (Nominee) to apply for APA Fellow status. The APA Fellows Online Application Platform must be used to initiate the nomination. SIOP can no longer forward the Fellowship materials on behalf of the Nominee. The SIOP Fellowship Chair will use the APA Fellows Online Application Platform to upload a letter of recommendation for each newly elected SIOP Fellow. Note: APA or APS will not consider Fellow candidates unless they are current in their dues payments.
APA acts on Fellowship at its annual meeting in August and notifies SIOP of its action (and in turn SIOP notifies the Nominee) after that meeting.
To be considered for APS Fellowship, the SIOP Fellow Nominee must so indicate on the Checklist for SIOP Fellow Nominators and must have endorsement by one (1) APS Fellow.
