Sells Award for Distinguished Multivariate Research

The Sells Award for Distinguished Multivariate Research is named for Saul B. Sells, a founder and an early President of SMEP (1962), who provided a generous gift that is used to fund this award. The Sells Award for Distinguished Multivariate Research is given annually to recognize an individual who has made distinguished lifetime achievement in multivariate experimental psychology. This award represents the highest honor bestowed by the Society in recognition of contributions to our field. The recipient is invited to the next meeting of SMEP to deliver an address and receives an honorarium.
