Nominate Your Colleagues Today!

Each year, AAPS elevates a few members to Fellow Status in recognition of their professional excellence and sustained superior impact in fields relevant to AAPS’s mission: to advance the capacity of pharmaceutical scientists to develop products and therapies that improve global health.

Nomination Process Overview

Candidates for AAPS Fellow status are nominated by an individual AAPS member. The nominator and nominee work together to develop a thorough nomination package which meets the criteria outlined later in this document. They are encouraged to work with an advisor who is experienced in navigating the Fellowship nomination process. To that end, the nominator or the nominee may ask the AAPS Fellows Committee to help them identify an advisor from among the AAPS Fellows.

Completed nomination packages must be submitted electronically to AAPS by the deadline. Nomination materials can be found in the AAPS 2018 Fellows Handbook below.


Application Deadline: April 27, 2018 (5:00PM EST)
Submissions must be submitted to awards@aaps.org in (1) one PDF document ONLYDOC files will not be accepted.
Nominees and Nominators must be current members of AAPS.  Please review membership recommendations in the Fellows Handbook.

Successful Nominations approved for Fellows status are recognized during the AAPS PharmSci360 Meeting.
