First, from the Society for Multivariate Experimental Psychology (SMEP), he received a dissertation research grant for $3,760 to help offset direct research costs associated with conducting his dissertation research. Second, he received a Humane Studies Fellowship for $5,000 from the Institute for Humane Studies; the fellowship awards doctoral pursuits advancing ideas of liberty and peace at the highest intellectual levels. Finally, he was awarded the prestigious 2015 Meredith P.
