Sequential Support for Exceptional Students
With the inauguration of the Robert R. Coly Prize, the Foundation has conceptualized the four main academic awards and scholarships as a suite of funding opportunities designed to support exceptional students with career aspirations in parapsychology throughout their educational experience. From the Charles T. and Judith A. Tart Student Incentive Award for Parapsychological Research of $500 for undergraduate and graduate students with specific research goals, to the Robert R. Coly Prize of $1000, to the Eileen J. Garrett Scholarship of $3000 for undergraduate or graduate students who are enrolled in accredited parapsychology degree programs and/or who are completing masters or doctoral programs with research projects that include parapsychology, and to the Frances P. Bolton Fellowship of $3000 which supports the continued work of new Ph.D.s whose doctoral research included parapsychology, these four awards can aid worthy students who begin with an undergraduate research project and continue on through the Ph.D.
Needless to say, then, becoming a recipient of one of the Foundation’s grants and awards, does NOT make an individual ineligible for further funding from the Foundation.
