Thomas J. Pearsall, Jr., Fellowships

Pearsall Fellowship Details

Two fellowships will be offered for Fall 2021-Spring 2022. Each will pay $2000 for tuition and up to $5600 for 40 weeks of supervision for one year at $140 per hour for each of the two fellowships. The fellowship recipients will be non-matriculated students chosen based on eligibility to matriculate and likelihood to complete criteria for one of PCC's educational program tracks, if they should choose to engage more fully. If for any reason the fellow does not use all of the supervision offered in this fellowship, we would use funds remaining from their fellowship to provide an additional fellowship, providing sufficient funds remain.

All applicants must reside and practice in NC or SC. Complete applications must be received by May 15, 2021.

Mental health professionals who would like to learn more about psychoanalytic thought and practice before considering whether to apply as a matriculated student in either the Psychoanalytic or Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy clinical training programs can apply for Pearsall fellowships by submitting the Pearsall Fellowship Application including all supporting materials due by May 15.

All application materials and information will be kept confidential.

We are grateful to Thomas J. Pearsall, Jr. for his support of psychoanalysis through the training and education programs of our Center. Over his lifetime Tom has developed a deep appreciation of the arts and sciences, and he has a particular interest in psychoanalysis. Recognizing the increasing cost of the required education and training for this field of study he hopes these fellowships will help increase the number of practitioners in NC and the southeast.
