Fellows

Fellow status — the highest class of membership within the society — is an acknowledgment of outstanding and continuing work in the field of gerontology. The Gerontological Society of America awards GSA fellow status (FGSA) and Academy for Gerontology in Higher Education fellow status (FAGHE). Fellow status recognition can come at varying points in a career and can acknowledge a broad scope of activity; research, teaching, administration, public service, practice, and notable participation within the society.  Fellow status carries a certificate and lapel pin commemorating your status and achievements. Both of these are presented at the Society's Annual Meeting, during the Section Community Meetings.

GSA encourages its fellows to use the “FGSA” designation — which stands for Fellow of The Gerontological Society of America — when listing their academic credentials after their name. Fellows of the Academy for Gerontology in Higher Education are encouraged to use the "FAGHE" designation. 

For more information about fellow status, please review our fellows nomination pages, list of current fellows, or Contact Us.
