SIOP Fellow Nomination Package Requirements

Stephanie Payne, Former Chair; Neal Schmitt, Chair (2022–2023); Alexis Fink, Associate Chair; and Karen Grabow, Chair-in-Training

SIOP recognizes the outstanding contributions of our members in a wide range of employment settings with election to Fellow status. Detailed instructions and pointers can be found on the SIOP website: https://www.siop.org/Membership/SIOP-Fellowship

On March 15, 2022, SIOP’s Executive Board approved a proposal to modify the nomination package for SIOP Fellow. The primary intention for these changes was to reduce the amount of redundant materials submitted. The criteria remain the same.

Eligibility for Fellow (no changes)

  • Must be a current Society Member (see SIOP bylaws, Article II: Membership) at the time of nomination and for the previous 2 years and have accumulated 10 years of professional membership in SIOP, inclusive of the year in which the candidate is nominated. (For example, current Members who joined or upgraded to professional membership status no later than 2013 and have accumulated 10 years of professional membership by maintaining their membership since 2013 would be eligible to be nominated no earlier than 2022, at which point they would have the required 10 years of accumulated professional membership. However, nominators are urged to consider whether the potential nominee has made substantial contributions to the field in those 10 years.)
  • Must demonstrate evidence that the individual’s contributions have had meaningful, sustained, and unusual impact on the field of industrial and organizational psychology.
  • Must be nominated by another Society Member or Fellow. Self-nomination is not permitted.

Package Requirements (bolded text reflects changes)

  • Nominee CV or resume (with R next to refereed publications)
  • Nominee standalone bio (1-page limit)
  • Nominee self-statement (extension to bio; 3-page limit)
  • Nomination letter from SIOP Member (2-page limit)
  • Three letters of endorsement (2-page limit each)
    • At least 2 of the 4 total letters (1 nomination letter, 3 endorsements) must be from SIOP Fellows
  • List of contact information for nominator and endorsers

Portal for submission of materials opens August 1, 2022.

The nominator submits all materials to the portal.

Deadline: November 1, 2022
