Wisconsin Academy Fellows

Since 1982, the Wisconsin Academy has honored people who represent the best and brightest of Wisconsin. The highest level of recognition conferred by the Wisconsin Academy, the Fellows award acknowledges a high level of accomplishment as well as a lifelong commitment to intellectual discourse and public service.

Prospective Fellows are considered for their extraordinary contributions to the sciences, the arts, and the cultural life of the state. Fellows have a career marked by an unusually high order of discovery; technological accomplishment; creative productivity in literature, poetry, or the visual or performing arts; depth of public service; or other academic or cultural achievement.

Anyone can nominate a prospective Fellow for consideration. The nomination window for Academy Fellows is now closed and will re-open in spring of 2017. A Wisconsin Academy committee broadly representative of the sciences, arts, and letters reviews nominations and selects new Fellows every other year from a pool of new and existing nominees.

From Our Fellows

The voluminous new history of Wisconsin agriculture by author and historian Jerry Apps is a pleasure to consume, learn from, and enjoy.

Among the largest butterflies in the world, the blue morpho is severely threatened by deforestation of tropical forests and habitat fragmentation. Yet these and other tropical butterflies may hold the key to discovering pharmaceuticals that will benefit humankind.

Zoologist and Academy Fellow Allen M. Young reveals the delicate evolutionary dance between tropical butterflies and plants—and what it means for the future health of both people and planet.
