Apply for awards supporting dissertation research

Hogg Foundation
Awards of $1,500 to Support Doctoral Research
The Hogg Foundation is expanding eligibility for the Frances Fowler Wallace Memorial Award to include doctoral candidates at all institutions of higher education in Texas. Applicants must be pursuing a PhD in nursing, psychology, social work or another field relevant to mental health.
The award is restricted to dissertation research and provides up to $1,500 to cover research-related expenses. The foundation is particularly interested in proposals that align with our new strategic vision. Relevant areas of focus include historically underserved populations, rural communities, prevention and early intervention, social determinants of health and mental health, and community conditions that influence mental health and well-being.
Recipients Ya-Ching Huang and Pamela Recto recently spoke with the foundation about their respective dissertation projects, which investigate culturally specific mental health perceptions and experiences.
Eligible candidates are encouraged to apply at any time. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until all funds have been allocated.
