Record Number of Psychology Doctoral Students to Receive SIOP Awards

Four candidates in the GC’s Ph.D. Program in Psychology will receive awards at this year’s Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP) conference—the organization’s highest number yet of honors given to students of a single doctoral program in one year.
The following students will receive awards at the conference, which will be held April 23-25 in Philadelphia:

  • John Capman (pictured at top), who will receive the 2015 Leslie W. Joyce and Paul W. Thayer Graduate Fellowship in I-O Psychology, with an award of $10,000 to support his dissertation research;
  • Jolie Terrazas (pictured at right), who will receive a SIOP Grant of $7,000 to support her dissertation research;
  • Eric Knudsen, who will receive the John Flanagan Award for the Outstanding Student Contribution to the SIOP 2015 Conference Program. The award is given to the research poster that is judged to be the best among several hundred submissions;
  • Peter Yu, Christine Smith, Eric Knudsen, and Laura Sywulak, who will receive an award for their research poster, which was judged to be among the top 20 posters out of several hundred submissions.
SIOP, a division of the American Psychological Association, is the professional society for industrial-organizational psychologists. Read more about the awards and conference.
