ASC Fellows Committee invites nominations for Fellows in the Society. The title of "Fellow" is given to those members of the Society in good standing who
have achieved distinction in criminology. The honorary
title "Fellow" recognizes persons who have made a scholarly contribution
to the intellectual life of the discipline, whether in the form of a singular,
major piece of scholarship or cumulative scholarly contributions. Longevity
alone is not sufficient. In addition, a Fellow must have made a significant
contribution to the field through the career development of other criminologists
and/or through organizational activities within the ASC.
of those who have been awarded the Fellow status will be announced at the
Annual Meeting and the candidates will be acknowledged by the Society with
the presentation of a certificate.

Current members of the ASC Board are ineligible to receive this award.
Nomination materials should be submitted by March 1, 2017 to:
