Nominate a Leader

The NLA Fellows Program invites nominations of outstanding individuals who have a demonstrated record of leadership in higher education and hold an administrative leadership or senior faculty position at their respective institutions. Nominations of demonstrated leaders in policy-related or philanthropic organizations are also encouraged to participate in NLA.

If you would like to nominate an individual, please click here. Only individuals who are well acquainted with the nominee and can attest to his or her leadership potential, skills, and abilities should submit a nomination.

Successful completion of the nomination process will require:

  • Your contact information;
  • The nominees contact information; and
  • A brief description of how you think the nominee will benefit from the NLA Fellowship experience.

Nominees will be contacted by a National Forum staff member and asked to formally submit their application. 

If you have questions about eligibility, criteria, or other aspects of the application process please email
