After the nomination application packet has been submitted, it will go through several stages of reviews. Results will be provided by e-mail in spring 2018. GSA will honor the new fellows with a pin and a plaque.

Please note: once a nomination for fellowship has been received by the central office, there will be no communication regarding the status of the nomination until the various fellowship committees have made their decision.

Attempts to communicate with the fellowship committees will be rerouted to GSA's fellowship manager. If you need further information or assistance, please e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
