2025 College of Fellows Nominations | Deadline


Fellowship is one of the highest national honors the AIA can bestow upon a member. AIA Seattle nominates and supports local members who are submitting for the College of Fellows through the Fellows & Honors Committee. Fellowship decisions are made at the national level by a jury of Fellows. To nominate an individual for Fellowship, please fill out this form. Nominations received after Friday, March 15, 2024 will not be included in the 2024 awards cycle, but will be held to a future year.


  • Why should you put yourself, or a colleague, forward for the nomination process? Candidates for the College of Fellows must be nominated by either their assigned component or by a petition signed by any five Fellows in good standing or any 10 architect members in good standing. By completing our nomination process, you are putting yourself forward for component nomination. This means that you won’t need to complete the petition process, and that you’ll have the support of our amazing Fellows + Honors Committee, who will coach you through the submission process.
  • What key dates should you mark on your calendar?
    • March 15— Deadline to complete nomination form to be considered for component nomination
    • June— Coaching sessions begin for selected nominees
    • Summer & Fall— Working sessions to finalize your submission
    • Early October— Submission deadline for the 2025 College of Fellows cycle
  • How can you get a better sense of the scope of work required for this process? Review the example submissions that National has provided on their website. You can also request specific examples that aren’t currently provided by reaching out directly to the archivist!
  • What happens after you submit in October? The jury will review submissions and will announce the 2025 College of Fellows in early 2025. If you are not selected during this round, you will have two additional years to apply for consideration.

**All nominees will be asked to disclose any violations of the AIA Code of Ethics in the last seven years. Please review the AIA Code of Ethics here.
