We’re Looking for a Few Good Fellows

The SAME Academy of Fellows is a body of SAME members who have rendered dedicated and outstanding service to SAME, to military engineering, to engineering and related professions in general, and to their community.  Being accepted into the College of Fellows is a great distinction.  Somewhat less than 3% of the total SAME membership has been awarded this honor.  However, for members who have shown outstanding achievement and leadership (which includes leadership by example), being accepted into the Academy of Fellows is not an unachievable goal, and the Society is sincere in its desire to ensure that deserving members are granted this recognition.  The selection process is not a competition.
