The ACL Fellows program recognizes ACL members whose contributions to the field have been most extraordinary.

To be named a Fellow, a candidate must have been a member of the ACL for the past three (3) consecutive years and be nominated by a current ACL member.

A small group of new Fellows is announced each year. If you would like to nominate a candidate, please make your nomination at http://www.aclweb.org/portal/nominations. If you are unsure about a candidate's eligibility, please send a query to acl@aclweb.org. A nominator must provide a comprehensive case for the candidate and solicit two additional recommendations. The nominator should direct the recommenders to fill out recommendation forms (ACL will not contact individual recommenders or solicit letters). All forms submitted by October 1 of a given year will be considered, and submitted forms will be kept confidential.
