The SEAOC Board of Directors established the College of Fellows in 1994 to honor esteemed members who have provided distinguished service to the association and made outstanding contributions in the field of structural engineering. Each SEAOC member organization nominates prospective fellows based on a set of criteria that includes demonstrated skill and achievement in structural engineering, contributions to the profession through publication or presentations, service to their Member Organization or SEAOC, and service to the public through participation on boards and bodies relevant to structural engineering.

As of 2016, the College of Fellows annually selects and awards the "SEAOC College of Fellows Scholar" grant to a graduate student studying Civil Engineering with a structural emphasis. Learn more.
