The Hogg Foundation for Mental Health advances recovery and wellness in Texas by funding mental health services, policy analysis, research, and public education.
As part of this mission, the foundation is accepting applications for its Frances Fowler Wallace Memorial Award, which provides financial assistance to support for doctoral students’ dissertation research on the cause, treatment, cure, and prevention of mental disease, mental illness, and mental disorders. The award provides up to $1,500 for research-related expenses such as survey mailings, software, participant stipends and training.
Doctoral students at the University of Texas at Austin are eligible to apply. Applicants must plan to conduct a rigorous dissertation that advances the donor’s wishes to research and study the cause, treatment, cure, and prevention of mental disease, mental illness, and mental disorders. In addition, applicants must have successfully defended their dissertation proposal by the time of application.
