School of Psychology doctoral students Abbie Shepherd Beyenberg and Tyler Greenway’s project, Love Thy Neighbor as Thyself (and as Thy In-group): Examining the Effects of Moral Intuitions and Intercessory Prayer on Generous Behavior, has recently been awarded a Student Research Award from APA’s Division 36 for the Psychology of Religion and Spirituality. Their project will investigate the effects of moral intuitions and intercessory prayer on generosity. Results will provide insight into the nature of the interaction of virtuous attitudes and behaviors toward in-group and out-group members, cognition, and religiosity.  Congrats to Tyler and Abbie for receiving recognition and funding for their student research at a national level!
