Student Member with Honors and Outstanding Student Chapter Awards

The Student Member With Honors Award was established in 1999 to acknowledge students who have made an outstanding contribution to the discipline or to HFES during their tenure as a student.  This designation honors students who have made outstanding contributions to the discipline and/or HFES during their tenure as students. To qualify, students must meet all of the following eligibility requirements: 

  • Student membership in HFES for at least six months prior to application
  • Classified as a graduate student, or class standing of junior or senior for an undergraduate
  • Minimum GPA of 3.75 for graduate students; minimum GPA of 3.50 for undergraduate students
  • Successful completion of at least three HF/E-related courses with an A grade
  • Significant HF/E-related service to HFES (e.g., leadership roles at student chapters and technical groups)
  • One letter of recommendation from a faculty member, which specifies and demonstrates the outstanding contributions made by the student.  This letter of endorsement from the faculty member is critical to the application. The letter should highlight the outstanding contributions of the student and indicate how those achievements meet the requirements for the student to be recognized as a Student Member with Honors in the Society by distinguishing the student from their peers.

In addition, at least two of the following three conditions must be met: 

  • First author of an HF/E research paper published in an approved journal
  • Presenter of an HF/E-related lecture at a national or international conference
  • Evidence of significant contribution to an industry project
