Fellows of the AMS

The Fellows of the American Mathematical Society program recognizes members who have made outstanding contributions to the creation, exposition, advancement, communication, and utilization of mathematics.

2024 Fellows Collage
It is my pleasure to congratulate and welcome the new class of AMS Fellows, honored for their outstanding contributions to the mathematical sciences and to our profession. This year's class was selected from a large and excellent pool of candidates, highlighting the many ways in which our profession is advanced, and I look forward to working with them in service to our community.
— Professor Bryna Kra, President of the American Mathematical Society

See the list of 2024 Fellows and the full list of Fellows.

Nominations for the 2025 Class of Fellows of the AMS were accepted from February 1 through March 31, 2024. Nominations are now closed until next year.

Schedule for 2025 Class of Fellows Nominations and Selection:

  • February 1, 2024 Nominations open for the 2025 Class of Fellows
  • March 29, 2024 Any 2024 membership payments must be made by close of business on Friday, March 29, 2024 (4:15 p.m. Eastern Time)
  • March 31, 2024 Nominations close for the 2025 Class of Fellows
  • September 2024 Invitations are sent to newly selected members of the 2025 Class of Fellows
  • November 2024 The 2025 Class of Fellows is made public on the AMS website and nominators are notified of nominees' status

Important points about the Fellows of the AMS selection process:

  • The AMS Fellows Selection Committee accepts nominations for Fellows between February 1 and March 31 each year.
  • New AMS Fellows are selected from among those nominated. The target number of new Fellows in a given year is 0.35% of the (three-year trailing average) number of paying members.
  • To be eligible for nomination, as of the 2025 Class of Fellows, an individual must be an AMS member for the year in which they are nominated (2024) and have been a member for the prior three years as of July 31 of each year (2023, 2022, 2021). This change does not affect the eligibility of individuals originally nominated in 2022 and 2023.

The goals of the Fellows program are:

  • To create an enlarged class of mathematicians recognized by their peers as distinguished for their contributions to the profession.
  • To honor not only the extraordinary but also the excellent.
  • To lift the morale of the profession by providing an honor more accessible than those currently available.
  • To make mathematicians more competitive for awards, promotion, and honors when they are being compared with colleagues from other disciplines.
  • To support the advancement of more mathematicians in leadership positions in their own institutions and in the broader society.

The responsibilities of Fellows are:

  • To take part in the election of new Fellows,
  • To present a “public face” of excellence in mathematics, and
  • To advise the President and/or the Council on public matters when requested.

Election as a Fellow can be revoked for serious abrogations of these responsibilities.
