The Fellows Committee evaluates nominations in accordance with the criteria set forth in paragraph B1-2 of SNAME Bylaws. It states that “The grade of Fellow may be accorded exclusively to individuals who have made outstanding personal contributions to naval architecture, marine or ocean engineering, or allied disciplines through significant achievements in design, research, production, operation, education, or associated management. A candidate shall have attained the grade of Member and have had not less than ten (10) years of active practice.”

Other factors that are not sufficient for elevation to the grade of Fellow, but may be taken into consideration by the Fellows Committee, are prominence in a field or the marine industry as a whole, status as a role model for SNAME members and/or a mentor for Student Members and Young Professionals, and service/involvement in SNAME activities at the local, regional and national levels.

The Fellows Committee evaluates nominations at the end of each cycle and reports new selections to the SNAME Council.
