Project MAST

 

Are you a single male social drinker, 21-30 years old and interested in dating women?  Project MAST is looking for single men of ALL ETHNICITIES to participate in a research study on male-female social interactions.

 

Project MAST is a federally funded study on alcohol and male-female social interactions. The research is being conducted by Dr. Kelly Cue Davis at the University of Washington, School of Social Work.

 

EARN UP TO $195! The study involves a visit to our office and completing two online follow-up surveys.  The office visit takes 3 to 8 hours, and you will be paid $15 per hour (up to $120) at the end of the office visit.  The study also requires completing two online follow-up surveys, which take 30-60 minutes to complete.  You will be paid $30 for each survey completed, and will receive a $15 bonus if you complete both surveys. 

 

Also, when you complete the first follow-up survey, you will be automatically entered into a monthly drawing for a chance to win an additional $100.  The odds of winning the monthly drawing are 1 in 50 or better.  When you complete the second follow-up survey, you will be automatically entered into an end-of-study drawing for a chance to win an additional $200.  The odds of winning the end-of-study drawing are 1 in 320 or better.

 

As a study participant, you will spend the first half of your visit answering questions on a computer in a private room. Your answers are completely confidential, and are identified only by a code number. This means that any identifying information like your name or phone number can never be linked to the answers you provide on the computer.

 

After finishing these questionnaires, each participant is given beverages that are either alcoholic or non-alcoholic. Whether you will receive alcohol in your beverage is randomly determined, and we will not know until after you have finished the initial questionnaires. After finishing the drinks, you will begin the second half of the study. During the second half, you will read a story about a male-female interaction, and you will answer questions about how you would respond to the situation described. This portion of the study will also be done on a computer in a private room. As with the first part of the study, your answers are completely confidential, and are identified only by a code number.

 

If you do not receive alcohol in your beverage, you will be finished after answering the questions about the story. 

 

If you do receive alcohol in your beverage, we will ask you to stay in our office until you are no longer intoxicated.  While you are waiting, we will provide you with snacks and a choice of DVDs and magazines to pass the time. 

 

When you are finished with the office visit, we will tell you a bit more about the purpose of the study, give you a chance to ask us questions about our research, and we will write you a check to pay you for all of the time that you spent in our lab.  We also have bus tickets available for those who need them.
