|Fellow Award Nominations|
The CSAB Fellow designation may be awarded annually by the CSAB Board of Directors in recognition of individuals who have given sustained, quality service to the computing profession and to computing education through the activities of CSAB.
The CSAB Fellow Committee is responsible for evaluating all nominations submitted and to recommend a maximum of five candidates to the Board of Directors. Successful nominees (and their nominators) are informed of their selection in September and receive their Fellow pins at an awards ceremony held at an appropriate venue, usually the fall meeting of the CSAB Board of Directors.
Nomination Deadline Date
Recipients of the Fellow of CSAB award should be considered outstanding contributors to the computing profession and to computing education. To this end, any of the following criteria uniquely or in combination will be used in the selection process:
Truly outstanding contributions in one of the areas listed may offset less significant contributions in others. Except in unusual circumstances, recognition is limited to currently active individuals, or not later than three years after an individual's most recent formal CSAB involvement.
Resubmission of Nomination
The CSAB Fellow Committee will reconsider the case of an unsuccessful candidate the year immediately following first submission, provided the nominator submits a letter to CSAB Headquarters requesting reconsideration and updating the nomination with new information. The new information should be no longer than one letter-size page. The nominator may choose the alternate option of submitting a completely new nomination with references.
