The Hogg Foundation for Mental Health invites students from The University of Texas at Austin pursuing a doctorate to apply for the Harry E. and Bernice M. Moore Fellowship.
To be eligible for the fellowship, candidates must be in the process of completing a dissertation on the human experience in crises, including those resulting from natural or other major disasters or, more broadly, stress and adversity. This fellowship reflects Dr. Harry E. Moore’s concern for and sociological contributions to the study of the human experience in crisis.
The Moore Fellowship award is unrestricted. The fellow is not required to work as a condition of the award. However, upon completion of the dissertation, the fellow must submit a copy of the dissertation and present his or her research to the Hogg Foundation. There are no restrictions on other awards or employment that the fellow may obtain.
