Students completing honors capstone projects in psychological sciences earn the distinction of graduating with departmental honors while gaining invaluable research experience with a faculty mentor conducting original research. Over the course of two semesters, students design their own studies, collect and analyze data, submit a poster proposal to a professional conference, and write a journal-length manuscript. In late spring, students travel to the annual meeting of the Midwestern Psychological Association in Chicago to present their work. Many students depend on financial assistance to attend, and this fund will provide the financial backing for the students’ trip to Chicago for MPA, including staying at the conference host hotel for two nights and driving transportation to and from Chicago. There, students have the opportunity to present the results of their hard work, as well as to attend scientific seminars, network with faculty and students from other universities, and explore Chicago.
