Graduate Student Receives Harry and Bernice Moore Fellowship
Posted: May 9, 2013
Congratulations to David Glisch-Sanchez, who was awarded the Harry E. and Bernice M. Moore Fellowship for Doctoral Research by the Hogg Foundation for Mental Health. David's dissertation is an exploration of the ways transgender, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and queer (TLGBQ) Latin@s experience social harm in the late 20th and early 21st centuries.
The Hogg Foundation awards this $20,000 fellowship annually to one or more doctoral students completing a dissertation on the human experience in crises caused by natural or other major disasters or, in a broader sense, stress and adversity. The fellowship was established in 1995 by the estate of Bernice Moore in memory of her husband, Dr. Harry E. Moore, a professor and sociologist at The University of Texas at Austin. The fellowship is open to doctoral students at the University.
