Seeking participants for decision making experiment

A group of researchers in the School of Forest and Environmental Sciences and the Department of Economics at the University of Washington is conducting a study to learn more about mechanisms used by nonprofit organizations to raise funds for providing public goods and services.

Students at the University of Washington who are over 18 years in age are eligible to participate. No specific knowledge or skill is required. Participation in this study is completely voluntary.

The study will involve participating in a computer based experiment on decision-making. To thank the participants for their time, they will receive $5 for showing up at the specified location and time. They will additionally be awarded between $5 and $80 based on their choices in the study.
