Dear Henry Colecraft:  

On behalf of the 2023 National Academy of Inventors Fellows Selection Committee and NAI Board of Directors, we are very pleased to inform you of your election to the rank of NAI Fellow.  Congratulations!


The NAI Fellows Selection Committee has chosen you for induction as you “have demonstrated a highly prolific spirit of innovation in creating or facilitating outstanding inventions that have made a tangible impact on the quality of life, economic development, and welfare of society.”  Congratulations on your achievement and well-deserved recognition as a truly prolific academic inventor.  


You are cordially invited to attend the NAI Fellows Induction Ceremony, which will be held on June 18, 2024, during the NAI 13th Annual Conference at the Research Triangle Park in Raleigh, N.C.  A leading official from the United States Patent and Trademark Office will provide the keynote address for the ceremony. Elected Fellows are required to attend the Fellows induction ceremony within two years of election to personally receive their award.

Our sincere congratulations on this well-deserved recognition of your accomplishments, and it is an honor to welcome you as a Fellow. I look forward to working with you in support of NAI’s mission to promote the importance of innovation and the celebration of academic invention.
