The Core Academy implements a nomination and peer-review selection process to elect its fellows. The fellowship is by invitation only.

Invitations are extended as a result of the following process

(1) a candidate is successfully nominated by an existing fellow or recommended by Academic Committee members with the support of an existing fellow; 

(2) his/her academic records are reviewed and approved by two peers (existing fellows) in the first review process; 

(3) the Academic Committee evaluates and confirms the individual’s scholarship and eminence in their field; 

(4) the candidate is elected by a majority vote of the relevant members of the Academic Committee;

(5) the candidate is confirmed by the Executive Board.
