CAP Fellows Program
The CAP Fellowship Program recognizes members of the CAP who have made significant contributions to the Canadian physics community. The program was launched in 2022 when inaugural fellowships were awarded to Art McDonald and Donna Strickland. The yearly target for new FCAP appointments is 1% of the full membership of the CAP, including Full, Joint, and Foreign memberships, where the full complement should not exceed 10% of the full membership.
Candidates are required to demonstrate significant contributions in two of the following four categories:
- service to the CAP or the Canadian physics community, including physics outreach.
- a demonstrated body of work showing noteworthy contributions to physics research and development while working in Canada,
- a demonstrated body of work showing significant contributions to the professional practice of physics, applied and private sector physics, and
- educational activities and/or mentorship, particularly training of physics HQP.
Members awarded this distinction will use the designation of FCAP or FACP.
