Society Fellow status is not simply based on adding up how many criteria are represented in a Nominee’s curriculum vitae. Similarly, recognition as a SIOP Fellow is not simply a matter of competency nor is it recognition of a steady and active career in I-O. Rather, Fellow status specifically recognizes UNUSUAL and OUTSTANDING contributions or performance that has an important impact on I-O psychology.
The most difficult decision that the Fellowship Committee must make is whether the contribution or performance and the evidence of impact is sufficiently outstanding to warrant Fellow status. Each candidate is considered individually; there is no quota or percentage of Fellows; the Fellowship Committee takes very seriously its obligation to make sure that outstanding SIOP Members are recognized, balanced by the realization that Fellowship is a significant honor, highly valued by all Members of SIOP.
