The ISSP Fellow Status is bestowed on an ISSP member in recognition of long-standing, continuous, and significant involvement in the society. The Distinguished International Sport Psychology Award and the Honor Award overlap to some degree with the ISSP Fellow Status, with the awards recognizing substantive contributions to the broader global landscape of sport and exercise psychology.​

What differentiates a Fellows status from the other awards already in existence, is that the ISSP Fellows status is a longstanding title bestowed upon an active ISSP member, as opposed to an award one receives in relation to a specific conference, which then becomes part of one’s past accomplishments. The Fellows status then becomes a title that can add to one’s credentials, so long as the ongoing requirements denoted for the title continue to be met.
