Call for 2013 AERA Fellows
Deadline October 4

June 2012

AERA is pleased to announce the call for nominations for 2013 AERA Fellows. Now in its seventh year, the AERA Fellows Program honors education researchers for their exceptional contributions to, and excellence in, education research. The program is intended to be inclusive of the scholarship that constitutes and enriches education research as an interdisciplinary field.

Fellow status is typically awarded for a person’s scientific or scholarly contributions, but it may also be awarded for exceptional contributions to the field through the development of research opportunities and settings. Ordinarily, nominees will be considered after at least 12 years of postdoctoral contribution. It is expected that AERA Fellows will continue to contribute to the advancement of the field through research, mentoring of junior scholars, and other forms of leadership and that they will uphold the highest standards of professional ethics in their work.

All nominees, nominators, and endorsers must be current AERA members. In addition, either the nominator or the endorser for each nominee must be an AERA Fellow. A nominator or endorser who is not an AERA Fellow should be an accomplished scholar with expertise germane to the nomination. Either the nominator or endorser must be from an institution other than that of the nominee. Members of the AERA Fellows Committee are not eligible to serve as nominators or endorsers. Self-nominations will not be accepted.

To nominate an outstanding researcher for Fellow status, please send the following to Heather Gregory at by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time, October 4, 2012:

  1. 2013 AERA Fellow Nomination Form
  2. One letter of nomination specifying why the candidate is judged to have made sustained, outstanding contributions
  3. One letter of endorsement from an AERA member who has made outstanding contributions to education research and is familiar with the nominee’s work and research accomplishments
  4. The nominee’s current curriculum vitae

All nominations will be treated confidentially by the AERA Fellows Program Committee. The committee will review the nominations and subsequently submit a list of recommendations to the AERA Council for approval. Nominators will be notified of the final decision. Of the nominees, only those selected for Fellows distinction will be notified by the committee.
