Who can become an Academy Fellow?

Do you know an outstanding leader in social work? Academy Fellows are premier scholars and practitioners influencing the social work field.

If you’re a current Fellow or Fellow emeriti, you can play a critical role in finding the next outstanding Fellow for AASWSW membership.

Nominations can include prominent scholars whose work has had a considerable impression on social work and social welfare along with practitioners who have had a significant impact at the national or international level.

Nominations open late summer each calendar year and forms are sent directly to Fellows. If you know a compelling candidate, complete a nomination form, attach a CV and send it in.  All nominations remain confidential.

Nominations Assistance

Nominations must be made by Fellows. The nominations for the 2022-23 Class of Fellows closes on August 2, 2022. Nominees selected to become Fellows will be notified in the fall.
