The University of West Georgia Ingram Library invites applications for the Ingo Swann Research Fellowship for 2018

The Ingo Swann Research Fellowship was established in honor of artist, author, practitioner and teacher of remote viewing, Ingo Swann, to advance scholarship in the field of parapsychology and to encourage use of the parapsychology collections in the University of West Georgia, Ingram Library’s Special Collections in unique and creative ways.

Those who are engaged in graduate-level, postdoctoral, or independent research are invited to apply. Members of the general public are not eligible, nor are students enrolled in undergraduate degree programs. Applications from women, people from traditionally underrepresented groups, and persons with disabilities are particularly encouraged.

Up to $3,000 of support will be awarded to help cover travel, living, and research expenses.

The deadline for applications and letters of support is May 1, 2018. Notice of awards will be made by June 15, 2018.

The fellowship timeframe for use is August to December 2018. Please note that the University of West Georgia campus may be closed parts of the year for holidays.

As a requirement of the Fellowship, the fellow will give an on-campus presentation on the subject of their research.

Applicants must provide the following information:
· A cover letter (not to exceed one page) including the project title; a brief summary; estimated dates of on-site research within the timeframe of the fellowship (August to December 2018)
· A brief budget for travel, living, and research expenses during the period of on-site research
