The scholarly and student support programs of the Parapsycholgy Foundation have been suspended until 2016, the 65th anniversary of the founding of the PF. At that point some but not all of the PF’s traditional grants may be reinstated. The Library Fellowship and Library Residency Program are still available although applicants must arrange for their own travel to and living expenses while at the Eileen J. Garrett Research Library. Scroll down for more information.
The following is a list of the traditional PF grants and awards that have been suspended:

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 Foundationís grants and awards, does NOT make an individual ineligible for further funding from the Foundation.
