Honorary fellowship

The Institute of Physics seeks help in identifying exceptional individuals for the award of its highest honour, Honorary Fellow.

Honorary fellowship is conferred by the Institute on distinguished individuals for exceptional service to physics or a closely related discipline. It may also recognise important service to the Institute or someone whose relationship with the Institute has been of tremendous benefit.

If you wish to nominate someone for an honorary fellowship we ask that you do this by completing a nomination form. There is also a guidance form which provides further information about honorary fellowship and advice on how to complete the form. Nominations are considered annually by our Honorary Fellows Committee.

Nominations can be submitted at any time throughout the year. For consideration in 2016, nominations must be received by Friday 15 April 2016. Nominations received after this date will be considered in the following year.

Completed nomination forms should be sent to:

Secretary to the Honorary Fellows Committee
The Institute of Physics
76 Portland Place
London W1B 1NT

Completed nomination forms may also be submitted by email to awards@iop.org.

The Institute welcomes nominations from the business and industry communities as well as for women and individuals from ethnic minorities who have made a significant contribution to physics.
