Recognition as an AAEA Fellow is AAEA's most prestigious honor. The main consideration for selecting Fellows is continuous contribution to the advancement of agricultural or applied economics as defined by the Vision Statement. Achievements may be in research, teaching, extension, administration, and/or other contributions to public or private sector decision-making.
Any AAEA member may nominate any living member for the honor of election as Fellow. You can find instructions on how to do so, including the most recent call for nominations on the Submit a Fellows Nomination page.
The AAEA Fellows page lists those that have been given the designation of AAEA Fellow. Full biographies of each Fellow can be found in the proceedings issue of AJAE in the year in which they received the designation.
