Fellow Honor

Fellow Honor

Recognizes outstanding and significant contributions of academic, mentoring, technical and policy efforts in the field of materials protection and performances. The Fellow Honor was established to develop a broadly based forum of technical and professional leaders to serve as advisors to the Association.

Only those who have made extraordinary and outstanding contributions to a scientific or technical body of knowledge -- over a lengthy career -- receive this honor. The Fellow Honor is awarded in recognition of distinguished contributions of an AMPP member that may be in any of the following areas:

  • Advances in corrosion science, corrosion engineering, or corrosion control,
  • Raising awareness of materials degradation,
  • Actively increasing inclusion and diversity in the field,
  • Notable educational or research-related activities, and
  • Mentoring or advancing others in the field.

Together, AMPP Fellows develop a broadly based forum of industry expertise to serve as advisers to the Association. AMPP Fellows who accept their nomination are anticipated to be actively involved in future mentoring and social benefit activities following their recognition.
