General Announcements

$5 Cash Incentive for Research Study Participants

Hello Fellow Auggies!

My name is Anabel Chavez, a social psychology major and McNair Scholar at Augsburg College. I am conducting research this summer, and I would like to invite you to participate in my study!

This study measures how autobiographical memories can affect satisfaction in a romantic relationship. Therefore the study will ask for participants to disclose two personal relationship-defining memories. Participants are required to be at least 18 years of age and are currently in a romantic (but not marital) relationship. Participants are also required to have been in their current romantic relationship for at least 6 months (or longer).

The study contains two phases, one which requires you to complete an online survey on your own time or at home (5-10 minutes), and the second phase requires you to come to campus to take a more extensive survey (20-30 minutes). Participants will also receive a $5 cash compensation at this time.

For any further questions, concerns, or to schedule an appointment, please send me an e-mail at

Thank You!
