WANT TO JOIN AEL?

Alpha Epsilon Lambda (AEL) is the prestigious honor society for graduate and professional school students.  It recognizes students who are in the top 35% of their college, and no more than 1% of these students are accepted each year.  We are currently starting the application process for new members for induction into the class of Fall 2020.  AEL is the FIRST and ONLY academic honor society dedicated to the recognition of excellence among graduate and professional school students, regardless of academic discipline.
 
If you think you meet the qualifications, please complete the pre-screening application form here that mainly includes your:
 
1.    First and last name + UFL email
2.    Major
3.    GPA (you will need to be in the top 35% of your major to qualify)
4.    Number of credits completed (you will need to have already completed 12 or more credits at UF to qualify)
 
The deadline for this form to check your eligibility is September 14, 2020 at 5 p.m. Qualified applicants will be sent a full membership application in return, as well as an invitation via zoom link to a meet-and-greet for potential new members on September 23, 2020 at 6:30 pm.  
 
The final application for membership will consist of an application form, your CV/resume, a reference form, and a very optional letter of recommendation due on October 2nd in a consolidated PDF. In your application, we will look for demonstrated leadership as well as professional/scholarly accomplishments both in and out of school. Please take the time to present these documents in the most professional manner possible. The presentation (or lack thereof) plays a role in determining acceptance when application numbers are high in a given semester. 
 
Completing this pre-screening does not in any way commit you to applying for or accepting admission to AEL, nor does it constitute an acceptance by AEL for your membership.  Only when an invitation is extended will an obligation be constituted.
 
New Members will be inducted at our Fall Induction Ceremony on November 6th, 2020 at 6:30 pm.
