Doctoral student Ezra Markowitz awarded Betty Foster McCue Fellowship
ESSP Ph.D. student Ezra Markowitz recently received the 2011-2012 Betty Foster McCue Fellowship for Human Performance and Development. This fellowship grants two doctoral students in their final year $5,000 each towards the completion of their dissertation research. The awards are made to students whose area of dissertation research is primarily involved in topics related to human development and performance.
Ezra’s research centers around the intersection of social and moral psychology, ethics, environmental conservation, communications and policy. His current projects include exploring climate change beliefs cross-nationally, the role of affect in driving charitable donations in the environmental domain, how psychological variables shape travel-to-school decisions, and intergenerational stewardship in the context of climate change.
