Fellow status — the highest class of membership within the society — is an acknowledgment of outstanding and continuing work in the field of gerontology.

The Gerontological Society of America awards GSA fellow status (FGSA) and Academy for Gerontology in Higher Education fellow status (FAGHE). Fellow status recognition can come at varying points in a career and can acknowledge a broad scope of activity; research, teaching, administration, public service, practice, and notable participation within the society.
