Moore Fellowship: Doctoral students invited to apply for $20,000 award
December 2, 2010
The Hogg Foundation for Mental Health invites doctoral students at The University of Texas at Austin to apply for funds to support their dissertation research.
The foundation awards a $20,000 fellowship annually to one or more doctoral students completing a dissertation on the human experience in crises caused by natural or other major disasters or, in a broader sense, stress and adversity.
Applications are due by 1:00 p.m. central time on Wednesday, February 2, 2011. View application instructions and additional information online at www.hogg.utexas.edu/rfp/moore_fellowship.html.
The fellowship was established in 1995 by the estate of Bernice Moore in memory of her husband, Dr. Harry E. Moore, a professor and sociologist at the university. Moore specialized in disaster studies, including tornadoes and hurricanes that affected the state of Texas.
Since 1940, the foundation has worked to improve the mental health of all Texans through the support of effective mental health services, research, policy and public education. The foundation is part of the Division of Diversity and Community Engagement at The University of Texas at Austin.
