AIChE Fellows | AIChE

Fellow is AIChE's highest grade of membership and is achieved only through election by the AIChE BOD, generally upon recommendation of the AIChE Admissions Committee through whom all nominations for election to Fellow are processed.

Fellows are an important resource for AIChE in providing experience-based guidance to leadership and members, as well as contributing to the activities of many AIChE entities.  See the Fellows Newsletters and Archived Fellows Council Reports for details.

Fellows Endowment

The Fellows Council is thrilled that the Fellows Endowment will support expansion of the K-12 STEM Ambassador Program, a pivotal initiative within AIChE’s national awareness campaign, Bee a ChemE.

Launched in 2021 at Ohio State University, by a dedicated team of AIChE undergraduate leaders, who are trained in classroom teaching methods by AIChE’s Academy, the program has already inspired 200+ elementary and middle school students to the fascinating possibilities within STEM fields. This exciting program is expanding young minds to the wonders of science and math and highlighting that a career as a chemical engineer is as diverse and varied as they are.

To achieve the expansion, a fundraising campaign to secure a minimum of $50,000 was launched. Why $50,000? It currently costs ~$2,000 to run the program at one university for one year. AIChE’s endowment earnings policy allows up to 4% earnings to be utilized, making this a perfect match!

Join us in making a meaningful gift and create a perpetual source of funding to expand the K-12 STEM Ambassador Program.
