Do you know someone who has made a significant contribution to the state of Wisconsin? Do you have a friend or colleague who is highly esteemed for their judgment, perceptiveness, and breadth of knowledge? Do they possess a keen understanding of how literature, art, and science contribute to the cultural life and welfare of our state? Is there an educator, mentor, civic or business leader in your community who has had a career marked by an unusually high order of discovery and technological accomplishment; creative achievement in the arts (e.g. literature, visual art, music); historical analysis; legal or judicial interpretation; philosophical thinking; or public service?
Give them the recognition they deserve with a Wisconsin Academy Fellow Award.
Nominations for the Wisconsin Academy Fellow Awards are accepted through the Wisconsin Academy's website. Nominees are reviewed biennially by a panel of current Fellows and Academy Board members before approval by the full Wisconsin Academy Board. Each nomination will be eligible for consideration in two consecutive selection processes. (i.e., New 2022, or 2023 nominations submitted before September 30, 2023 will be eligible for consideration in the Spring of 2024 and 2025.) Nominators may update/revise materials before the next selection process, but it is not required for reconsideration of a candidate. If not selected after two consecutive cycles, candidates will need to be re-nominated for full consideration.
