Through the NSSA Fellowship Program, the NSSA recognizes members who have made significant contributions to the neutron scattering community in North America in one or more of the following areas: advances in knowledge through original research and publication; innovative contributions in the application of neutron scattering; contributions to the promotion or development of neutron scattering; techniques service and application in the activities of the NSSA or neutron community.
Each year, election to Fellowship of the Neutron Scattering Society of America is limited to no more than one half of the percent of the membership. Additionally, recipients of the Clifford G. Shull Prize and Sustained Research Prize are automatically named Fellows of the Society. Election as NSSA Fellow recognizes outstanding contributions to neutron scattering and the North American neutron scattering community.
