Albert Bandura Graduate Research Award

Liz Redford has been selected to receive 2014-2015 Association for Psychological Science (APS) Albert Bandura Graduate Research Award for her paper, “Perceived Moral Responsibility for Attitude-based Discrimination”. This research presented participants with vignettes about a hypothetical implicitly biased person who discriminates against African Americans. Participants blamed the person based on whether he was aware of his implicit bias, and based on whether he seemed morally obligated to foresee his discriminatory behavior. These awards are given by APS and Psi Chi for outstanding work presented or published by a graduate student.
