Students from The University of Texas at Austin who are pursuing a doctorate are invited to submit a proposal for the Harry Estill and Bernice Milburn Moore Fellowship. To be eligible for the fellowship, candidates must be in the process of completing a dissertation relevant to the mental health needs of Texans.

The selected fellow receives a one-time, unrestricted award of $20,000. 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 with an abstract or summary. There are no restrictions on other awards or employment that the fellow may obtain.

The Moore Fellowship was established in 1995 by the estate of Bernice Moore in memory of her husband, Dr. Harry Estill Moore, a professor and sociologist at the university. Moore specialized in disaster studies, including tornadoes and hurricanes that affected the state of Texas.

We are accepting applications until February 21, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. CST for the fellowship period of June 1, 2018 – May 31, 2019. 

The awardee will be announced in May 2018.

Eligibility

Doctoral candidates in nursing, psychology, social work, sociology and other fields relevant to mental health programs at The University of Texas at Austin may apply.

Applicant’s dissertation proposal must have been successfully defended by the time of application submission. Dissertations may be quantitative or qualitative in design. Applicants must have a strong research background with a primary interest in the human experience in crises, including those resulting from natural or other major disasters or, more broadly, stress and adversity.
