On the Awards Committee Web pages (You'll need to sign in with your NSS# and zip code). The committee's pages also have more good info for submitting nominations for Fellow and other NSS awards.

It's a fairly simple process. Write a nomination letter (preferably not more than two pages) and mail or e-mail it to me at mkhood@woh.rr.com. The deadline for nominations (for all awards) is November 15th. Members nominated for a Fellow must be a member in good standing for two or more years.

It helps your candidate's chances significantly if you can get others to submit nomination letters too. However, please don't have them submit "me too" and "I concur" letters. Their nomination letters should be able to stand on their own.

Hope this helps. Feel free to contact me if you have any other questions.
