Union Fellows

Established in 1962, the Union Fellows program recognizes AGU members who made exceptional contributions to Earth and space sciences as valued by their peers. The Union Fellow honor is a tribute awarded to eligible AGU members that have attained acknowledged eminence in the geosciences and are carefully vetted by section and focus group committees. The Fellows program serves to meet the need of identifying authorities who could advise, upon request, the various government agencies and other organizations outside the Earth and space sciences.
