The Honorary Fellowship reaches out to identify chemical professionals whose work is significant to the chemical sciences and engineering.
Terms of Reference
CIC Honorary Fellowship (HFCIC) recognizes two types of significant contributions to the chemical professions and to society:
- Exceptional contributions to the chemical professions by Canadians who are not eligible for full CIC membership. Their contributions would be through their leadership in areas such as business, public policy, and philanthropy.
- Exceptional leadership or scholarship by non-Canadians who have made significant contributions to the chemical sciences in their home countries, with relevance to the Canadian chemistry professions.
CIC Honorary Fellowship nominations must be sponsored by at least five full members in good standing.
Each nomination shall be accompanied by supporting information comprising, at a minimum, a letter of recommendation from each nominator, the candidate's curriculum vitae, and a description of the contributions that shows clearly why the individual merits this special recognition.
Sponsors from outside the candidate's institution are desirable. Election as an Honorary Fellow requires unanimous approval by the CIC Board of Directors.
Full documentation on each nominee shall be submitted to the chair of the CIC Board through the executive director at least two months in advance of the board meeting at which the vote will take place. Alternatively, with the agreement of the CIC Chair, the vote may be carried out by mail ballot.
There shall not at any time be more than 25 living Honorary Fellows of whom not more than 10 shall have been resident outside of Canada at the date of their election.JOIN NOW
