This award was initiated by the APA Board of Scientific Affairs to recognize individuals who have made outstanding contributions to psychological science through their commitments to a culture of service. Sellers is honored for the leadership roles he has taken in several professional societies, for his involvement as an editor of several journals, and for serving as a mentor to his students and colleagues. In addition, his advocacy for psychological science has helped promote it to those outside the field and helped to support those within it.

Congratulations to Robert Sellers!
