The Fellows Committee is charged with vetting and recommending appropriate individuals to become Fellows of the American Psychological Association, the highest order of recognition accorded members of APA. To become a Fellow, a member must have made "unusual and outstanding contribution or performance in the field of Psychology."
Individuals are nominated by their Division and endorsed by the APA Fellows Committee, the APA Council of Representatives, and the APA Board of Directors. A Fellow put forth by the Division of Rehabilitation Psychology is thus a Fellow of the APA.
