Updated Deadline for DGRAV Fellowship

Dear DGRAV members,

I hope that this message finds you well. I’m writing to encourage you to nominate colleagues who have made significant contributions to our field to become APS Fellows through the Division of Gravitational Physics (DGRAV). We realize that everyone is juggling increased responsibilities during these weeks, and so remind you that a strong nomination letter does not have to be long! A one page summary of key physics contributions and their importance can be sufficiently eloquent.

Becoming an APS Fellow is a distinct honor. The selection is conducted by one’s professional peers, and newly elected Fellows number no more than 0.5% of Society membership. Please take this opportunity to honor your colleagues and to highlight the many ways in which our science is advancing.

Any current APS member can initiate a nomination. The membership of APS is diverse and global, and the Fellows of APS should reflect that diversity. Fellowship nominations of women, members of underrepresented minority groups, and scientists from outside the United States are especially encouraged.

For information on how to nominate, and a list of current Fellows, please see the APS Fellowships webpage. So please take a minute to think of a colleague who has substantially advanced gravitation research in some way—perhaps recently, perhaps through a long track record of contributions—and should join the list.

The deadline for submitting fellowship nominations is Wednesday, July 1. If you have any questions or would like assistance getting a nomination together, please feel free to contact me at traschen@umass.edu.

Best wishes for you and your families,

Jennie Traschen
DGRAV ViceChair
