During our banner 65th anniversary in 2016, PF’s Board of Trustees, following concentrated deliberation, has worked to reassess and revamp our Grant and Scholarship program that was, regretfully, suspended during a period of severe financial hardship. It goes without saying that we are enormously proud of our years of support of students and researchers the world over. We have provided a modicum of financial support that has assisted many to pursue highly productive careers with valued contributions to the science of parapsychology.
Our scholarship and grants programs are so important to us and the field. We at the PF are understandably enormously proud of our “family” of PF grantees and award winners. Without them the growth of our field is compromised. It is important to note that PF seeks to support our colleagues in the US and around the world so we would invite all our friends to keep us in mind for donations. One way to give is through estate planning, so we ask please, therefore, that you consider PF within your estate planning, in the knowledge that if you are a US citizen your donations are fully tax deductible because the PF is a 501 c3 tax exempt organization. As our support from donors, small and large, grows, we will, as always, seek to maximize our support so to enlarge our programs. Below are some of the grants and scholarships we are able to offer again.
- The Eileen J. Garrett Scholarship
- The Frances P. Bolton Fellowship
- The Eileen Coly Research Grants
- The D. Scott Rogo Award for Parapyschological Media

The Eileen J. Garrett Research Library Fellowship is still accepted although applicants must find their own funding for travel and living expenses. Applicants are also encouraged to request these fellowships and programs at least six months in advance of hoped-for travel to the library.
