"Midwestern Psychological Association Presentation"

Grant in Aid of Research

Final Report: "I received $900 to help cover the costs of attending and presenting at the Midwestern Psychological Association (MPA) Conference in Chicago (April 30-May 2, 2015).  I presented a talk on Implicit Theory Shift After a Single Math Test.  This presentation built on my previous work on emotional expression and math performance (Burns & Friedman, 2012) and how people with various theories of intelligence respond to being primed with an alternate theory (Burns & Isbell, 2007).  My presentation was an exciting extension of my previous work and it was very valuable to present it to a larger audience.  At the time, I had received a revise and resubmit for a manuscript on this project.  That manuscript was later rejected, but I have now prepared a revised version for submission to a different journal.  Being able to share these findings gave me greater insights into this research and allowed me to bring a different perspective to this work. I am very grateful for this research support."

"Midwestern Psychological Association Presentation"

Grant in Aid of Research

Final Report: "I had requested $900 to support my travel to present at the Midwestern Psychological Association (MPA) Conference (May 1-3, 2014 in Chicago). I am very grateful from the support I received from the Research Council. I used the $900 toward my hotel, meals, registration, and mileage for the conference. I presented my work “Colorblindness versus suppression: Stereotypes on and not on the Rebound” with my undergraduate research assistant collaborators at this conference. This was a very beneficial experience for me and them. I was able to interact with many people to discuss this research and answer questions they had. Attending this conference also inspired me about the next step for this research project with a potential collaborator. I am very excited about continuing this line of research and the grant funding allowed me to make this next step possible."
