AIA Chicago Fellows

ABOUT THE AIA COLLEGE OF FELLOWS

Licensed architects who have made significant contributions to the profession and society and who exemplify architectural excellence can become a member of the AIA College of Fellows. Only 3% of AIA members have this distinction. These Fellows have distinguished themselves in the categories of design, practice, education or service in the community, and have at least 10 years of cumulative AIA membership are eligible applicants for Fellowship.

ELIGIBILITY, CATEGORIES, and criteria

If you haven't been nominated before and are interested in AIA Chicago nominating you for Fellowship, please submit a copy of your resume/profile, along with a small selection of supporting material so that we may include it in a file of eligible candidates (we recommend reading the Fellowship categories carefully, and forward materials that you feel speak best to your achievements in this regard). Please specify what Category you’d be supporting with your materials, and use the below informational list of elements the committee will be expecting and important considerations that will ultimately strengthen a submission.

Read More about Fellowship Categories HERE.

  • A well-considered decision about the Object /Category to be pursued, and why
  • Clear information about how the individual’s work has had ripple effects beyond the immediate firm/ area of work, specifically on the object selected
  • Careful separation of the individual’s work from any firm’s work (this can be difficult, but important to do)
  • Documented involvement/ contribution to the AIA in some fashion
  • List of broader contributions, even if not directly related to the object, such as mentoring, writing, teaching, community involvement, etc.
  • Careful review of AIA National’s Fellow requirements to assure that the individual will ultimately be able to comply
