Current Fellow Resources

About

The Program is supported through the contribution of dues. Dues go directly to the Fellows Program to support the engagement of our Fellows through such activities as providing peer review services for grants, enhanced recognition, involvement in public policy, increased opportunities to publish in the NAI Journal, special symposia, and more.

Thank you for your support of this important initiative as we continue to honor and recognize future generations of the nation’s prolific academic inventors across our nation and around the globe.

All dues are used to directly support the Fellows Program and assist in honoring and recognizing future generations of top innovators.

  • $250 Annual Membership ($195 is tax deductible)
  • $2500 Lifetime Membership ($1,950 is tax deductible)

Invoicing of Fellows Dues

Invoices for NAI Fellows Dues will be issued annually in June to all Fellows (with the exception of those who elect Lifetime Fellows Membership).

Induction Awards

In recognition of their outstanding accomplishments, honorees are presented with a signature trophy, medal, and custom rosette pin during the induction ceremony.

 

NAI Trophy

 

 

 

The NAI Fellows Trophy is an iconic glass piece which displays the Fellow’s name and year of election. At the top of a trophy, a globe is displayed to represent the significant impact the contributions of NAI Fellows have made on our world.

 

 

 

 

Rosettes

 

Another symbol of prestige is bestowed upon NAI Fellows through the rosette pin designed and crafted by Dexter Rosettes, Inc. The rosette dates back to 1802 when Napoleon Bonaparte instituted its use as a part of the Legion of Honor award. Rosettes today are used for various reasons including symbolizing excellence and an association with a specific organization.

 

 

 

 

Medal

 

In 2014, Fellows of the NAI were called upon to design an exclusive medal to be awarded alongside the trophy and rosette pin at the time of induction. A group of Fellows formed a committee and collaborated to design a medal which depicts the prestige and honor associated with NAI Fellowship. The medal features the NAI logo and represents the idea that “Innovation Moves the World.”

 

 


The NAI Fellows Logo and Seal were designed by a committee of Fellows. This logo and seal are for the exclusive use of elected NAI Fellows to denote their status of this high honor. The below files are available for download and use solely by Fellows of the NAI.
