Wisconsin Academy Fellows

Since 1982, the Wisconsin Academy has honored the best and brightest of our state with the Wisconsin Academy Fellows Award.

Established by the Academy in 1982, the Wisconsin Academy Fellows Award recognizes educators, researchers, mentors, artists, and civic or business leaders from across Wisconsin who have made substantial contributions to the cultural life and welfare of our state and its people.

Anyone in Wisconsin age eighteen or older can nominate someone for the Wisconsin Academy Fellows Award. Award-winning nominees generally demonstrate careers marked by an unusually high order of discovery; invention; technological accomplishment; creative productivity in literature, poetry, or the fine or practical arts; historical analysis; legal or judicial interpretation; philosophical thinking; or public service.

Wisconsin Academy Fellows frequently participate in Academy programs (see below), sharing their knowledge, talent, and other gifts with the people of Wisconsin. If you have questions about the Wisconsin Academy Fellows, or how to honor and recognize someone you know with a Wiscosnin Academy Fellows Award, send us an e-mail at fellows@wisconsinacademy.org.
