Selection Process

Is there an eminent, senior scientist to whom you would like to pay tribute, while simultaneously demonstrating your support for the sciences of mind, brain, and behavior? Through the FABBS Foundation "In Honor Of..." program, individuals can make donations that recognize senior scientists for his or her achievements and contributions.

The FABBS Foundation Board will periodically select honorees who have been nominated by their peers. These individuals will receive recognition on our website, including a biographical sketch, photograph, and listing of those who contributed to the honoree's campaign. This is a wonderful way to pay tribute to someone who has had a lasting impact on our sciences.

We encourage you to submit nominations for the "In Honor Of..." program to the Executive Director.
