Research grants fund summer projects by faculty, students

For the first time, four faculty members in the Department of Psychological Science received American Psychological Association’s (APA) Summer Undergraduate Psychology Research Experience
(SUPRE) grants. The projects range from an investigation of the relationship between eye movements and learning to the exploration of the relationship between mindful eating and various eating attitudes.

SUPRE and Faculty Undergraduate Summer Engagement (FUSE) grants allocate funds for UNG faculty to conduct research with undergraduate students who have little to no research experience.

“Receiving these grants means that the APA has recognized the high quality of our institution and our faculty, and they have entrusted us to make a difference in students’ lives through this program,” said Dr. Susann Doyle-Portillo, interim department head and professor of psychological science at UNG.
