The AED awards Fellow status to recognize distinguished contributions made by AED members to the field of eating disorders. The list of AED Fellows reflects a diversity of distinguished contributions to the field—and the interdisciplinary and international composition of the AED’s membership.
The status of Fellow in the Academy for Eating Disorders (FAED) presupposes that the qualifications of the person have elevated him or her to national and/or international recognition as a distinguished contributor to the field of eating disorders. In virtually all instances "distinguished" refers to a combination of the achievement of excellence and significant contributions deserving of recognition as extraordinary. The contributions of the person nominated have to be demonstrably unusual, innovative, and/or of a pioneering nature. Fellowship status is not conferred simply on the basis of seniority or competence.
The Fellowship Committee is thus looking to recognize candidates who have maintained AED membership in good standing continuously for at least the past five years, and who clearly have made one or more of the following contributions to the field:
(1) Distinguished, sustained research-based scholarship that has contributed significantly to the professional literature;
(2) Distinguished and sustained contributions to literature designed for lay audiences (e.g., people with eating disorders; families; advocates and activists);
(3) Distinguished, sustained, nationally- and/or internationally-recognized contributions to clinical services and/or prevention;
(4) Distinguished and sustained contributions to the leadership and activities of the AED;
(5) Distinguished and sustained contributions to advocacy in the context of government or other major organizations.
Should an applicant’s membership have lapsed for up to one year, s/he will be informed and be given the opportunity to renew membership by full payment of dues so that her/his application may be considered for fellowship status.
- Cover letter detailing (using specific examples and other evidence) how the candidate meets the criteria for Fellowship.
- Up-to-date curriculum vitae.
- Two letters of recommendation that address in detail, including specific examples, how the candidate meets the criteria for Fellowship. For example, a referee would need to support in detail, with specific examples, the applicant’s contention that she or he has made a significant, distinguished impact on AED and the field of eating disorders through his or her service to the organization.
Terms of Membership: The appointment to Fellow of the AED status is made on a lifetime basis, requiring that the individual maintains active membership in good standing in the AED. Additionally, fellows will be asked to make a one-time contribution of $200 for lifetime status as a Fellow.
