Charles W. Haynes Fellowship

Thanks to a generous grant from the Seaton Foundation, NABIS has established the Charles W. Haynes Fellowship. This fellowship recognizes promising new professionals that best promote the NABIS mission of advancing brain injury services and treatment through clinical, research and/or policy initiatives.  The Fellowship recipient will receive a cash award of $1,250.00, free registration at this year’s conference, will be formally recognized to the full body of the conference, and will present their work at specially recognized sessions during the general conference.

To be considered, applicants must have entered the field of brain injury research / rehabilitation / treatment within the past 10 years as demonstrated through academic degree matriculation, a verifiable change in professional focus (e.g., such as moving from primarily serving with other specific impairments, into brain injury), or other demonstration of recency in the field.

Interested professionals should submit the application to NABIS by email to, or by fax 713 526-7787.
