Fellow Reference Information

Fellow Reference Information

If you have been asked to serve as a reference for a Fellow nominee, you must submit your reference online through BEAM by 15 June.  Once your name and contact information are entered by the nominator, you will receive an email from OSA directing you to BEAM to enter the reference.

References are asked to complete a short questionnaire about the nominee and provide a brief statement describing their specific knowledge of the nominee's professional and other accomplishments that support election to OSA Fellow. An optional 1- page letter of support may also be submitted. This document must be a PDF.
References are able to view the 1-page narrative and CV/Resume provide by the nominator.

The nominator may have created an OSA account for you if one didn’t exist. If you don’t know your password, you may reset the default password by using the “forgot password” option. Please do not create a new OSA account as it won’t be associated with your reference requests.
