Candidates for the Fellows honor must be sponsored by an SPE Division or Special Interest Group. The SPE Fellows Election Committee considers eligible candidates on the basis of a personal history as well as written sponsorships from two SPE members. Only 321 members, counting the newest inductees, have been elected Fellows since the honor was established in 1984.
