Criteria for Fellow and Honorary Fellow Awards

This is the third in a series of articles from the SAWE Awards Committee.
The criteria for the Fellow and Honorary Fellow awards can be found in the attached files. These are presented in tandem because the criteria are similar. Note the differences in wording, viz., that a candidate for Fellow has “achieved distinction in Mass Properties Engineering, or has materially contributed to the advancement of the SAWE”; whereas, an Honorary Fellow has “achieved eminence in Mass Properties Engineering, or has made outstanding contributions to the advancement of the SAWE”.
A subtle distinction, but here are some additional guidelines: a candidate for Fellow has participated at the International level on committees or has led training sessions, or has been a key player in supporting the local chapter for an International Conference. Consistent and outstanding performance at the SAWE chapter level may also qualify, as would a distinct achievement in the field of Mass Properties Engineering.
Honorary Fellows are typically chosen from the field of Fellows and usually require a longer length of service at the International level in a key leadership position.
