Fellows

Fellows of the Arctic Institute of North America are elected in recognition of significant contributions to the knowledge of polar and/or sub-polar regions. The Institute currently has 146 Canadian Fellows, 108 American Fellows and 26 International Fellows.

The Fellows program was established in May, 1948, and by February, 1949, the Institute had elected 81 Fellows. Some of the names on that initial list of Fellows were: Rear Admiral R.E. Byrd, Dr. Diamond Jenness, Inspector Henry A. Larsen, Dr. Vilhjalmur Stefansson, Dr. J.B. Tyrrell, Dr. A.L. Washburn and Sir Hubert Wilkins. Fellows are elected for life.

At this time we are NOT accepting applications for Fellows as the criteria for nominations are being revised.
