HHS Region 6:
The Frances Fowler Wallace Memorial Award, established in 1974, provides financial assistance to support doctoral students’ dissertation research on “the cause, treatment, cure and prevention of mental disease, mental illness and mental disorders,” as designated in the will of Frances Fowler Wallace. Mrs. Wallace was the wife of John Forsythe Wallace, member of the Texas House of Representatives from 1920 to 1930. She left half of her estate to the foundation as an expendable fund for research.
The annual award provides up to $1,500 for research-related expenses such as survey mailings, software, participant stipends and training. Award recipients must provide a copy of the final dissertation to the foundation.
Applications are accepted from doctoral candidates based in Texas. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
