IEEE Fellow is the highest grade of Institute membership, conferred only by election by the Board of Directors. Candidates must be senior members with at least five years of IEEE membership. The nominator is responsible for preparing the formal nomination form; identifying five to eight IEEE Fellows, capable of assessing the candidate’s contributions, who agree to serve as references; identifying an IEEE Society or Council whose evaluating committee will assess the candidate’s technical qualifications and contributions. All material is sent to the Fellows Committee, which must review all nominations and assessments, and prepare a ranked list. The total number of Fellow recommendations each year cannot exceed 0.1% of IEEE membership, exclusive of Students and Associates.
