    Hello Research and Policy Community!

    We wanted to share an opportunity for military spouses who have a currently deployed spouse to take part in a research study from the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee. 

     

    A little about the research study: 

    Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee are currently conducting an online survey study about conversations military service members (SMs) and their spouses might have after a deployment (IRB #20.155). Two hundred participants (100 married couples) will be asked to complete surveys across a 3-month period. Spouses will complete a survey about two weeks before reunion, one month after reunion, and again one month later. SMs will be asked to complete a survey one month after reunion and again one month later. Each survey will take no longer than 60 minutes. 

    If you can answer yes to the following 2 questions, you qualify:

    1. Are you or your spouse currently deployed? 

    2. Will you be reunited within the next 3 months?

    If you do qualify and would like to participate, the link to do so is here

     

    For each survey completed, spouses will receive a $15 gift card and a bonus $15 gift card if they complete all three surveys. Service members will also receive a $15 gift card per survey as well as a bonus $10 gift card if they complete both surveys.   

    If you have any questions or are interested in participating, you can email the research team at [email protected]

     

    Let us know if you take the survey as we want to know how else we can support you while your loved one is deployed.

    We want to continue bringing you opportunities, surveys, research, and ideas from all types of organizations and this is just the beginning.
