Fellow Reference Information

Fellow Reference Information


If you have been asked to serve as a reference for a Fellow nominee, you must submit your online reference 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 describe their specific knowledge of the nominee's professional and other accomplishments that support election to OSA Fellow.References are able to review the one page narrative and CV/Resume of the nominee to aid in submitting the reference.

In addition to completing the online form, you may upload a statement or letter supporting the nomination. This document must be a PDF.

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.
