Fellow Award

This award recognizes members of TMS who are qualified for elevation to the Class of Fellow by reason of outstanding contributions to the practice of metallurgy, materials science, and technology. The award includes a life membership to TMS and is considered a pinnacle award.

Fellows shall be persons who have been full members of TMS for at least five years continuously and shall be qualified for elevation to the Class of Fellow by reason of outstanding contributions to the practice of minerals, metals, or materials science and technology. Fellows shall be entitled to use the title of “Fellow of The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society.” Posthumous nominations for Fellow will not be accepted for consideration by the subcommittee. A nomination is good for three years provided it meets criteria for the award each year. If a nomination is unsuccessful in a three-year cycle, the candidate must wait three years before being renominated.

For more information on this award, the nomination criteria, and the selection criteria, view the bylaws.
