2022 - Distinguished Fellow

The "Distinguished Fellow of the Botanical Society of America" is the highest honor our Society can bestow. Each year, the Distinguished Fellow Committee solicits nominations, evaluates candidates, and selects those to receive an award. Awardees are chosen based on their outstanding contributions to the mission of our scientific Society. Click here for more information and to see past winners.


The committee identifies recipients who have demonstrated excellence in basic research, education, public policy, or who have provided exceptional service to the professional botanical community, or who may have made contributions to a combination of these categories.

The selection of awardees is driven by nominations from the membership. Nominations should include: (1) a formal letter of nomination including a clear statement of (a) the notable accomplishments of the candidate; (b) disciplines that have been significantly influenced by the contributions of the candidate; (c) letters of support and evaluation regarding the nominee's candidacy, with complete contact information (postal address, phone and e-mail address); and (2) the curriculum vita of the candidate being considered.  All items should be combined into one PDF file that will be submitted with the nomination form.
