Jessica Caporaso awarded the Elizabeth Duffy Graduate Scholarship


Graduate student Jessica Caporaso (advised by Dr. Stuart Marcovitch) is the experimental area recipient of the Elizabeth Duffy Graduate Scholarship for the 2019-2020 school year. The Duffy scholarship is named in honor of Dr. Elizabeth Duffy, an Alumna of UNCG (then, the Women’s College of UNC), who earned her M.A. from Columbia University and her Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University. Dr. Duffy served with distinction on the Psychology faculty at UNCG for 30 years, as well as President of Division I of APA, and is best known for her theoretical writings on motivation and emotion. The Duffy Award is awarded each spring semester to female Psychology students based on their outstanding records of research and scholarship.

Congratulations Jessica!
