"How to nominate" a potential Fellow?:
If a potential candidate fits the criteria, we encourage you to nominate them, as we do not accept applications from candidates themselves. Candidates for the Fellowship are nominated by someone who understands the AGLN criteria and knows them and their work well. Nominations for the 2020 class will open December 2019.  To help you prepare, you may click on the "Sample Nomination Form" button below to see key questions that nominators will need to answer.
