Matthew J. Zagumny, psychology professor, won a 2013 Phi Kappa Phi Love of Learning Award. The award will support Zagumny’s research examining the role of religion on mental and physical wellbeing in Turkey and France.

Working with colleagues in both countries, Zagumny is examining the influence of majority and minority religious traditions and religious commitment on quality of life, perceived stress and healthy lifestyle behaviors. He received one of 147 Love of Learning awards distributed each year, with a $500 cash award. This year more than 1,400 applications were submitted.

The awards help to fund post-baccalaureate studies and career development for Phi Kappa Phi members ranging from graduate studies and doctoral dissertations to career development.
