Fellowship of ASME

Fellowship of the Australian Society for Music Education is one of the highest honours that the Society can award, and should be seen by ASME members and Fellows and by the wider education community to be a recognition of outstanding and distinctive contributions to the advancement of music education.

A Fellowship Awards Committee can only make decisions on the written evidence placed before them. A Fellowship is a national award and the evidence offered must provide sufficient proof that the person is indeed worthy of this highly prestigious award. It is therefore essential that in preparing nominations, nominators address the criteria set out in these Fellowship Guidelines.

The proforma nomination form, to be used for nominations is part of the Fellowship Guidelines document.

Nominations to be considered for the next conference should be mailed as follows:
