UWG Announces 1st Ingo Swann Research Fellowship

Formal advanced college degrees in Parapsychology ended years ago; however, there are a few colleges offering courses in Parapsychology. One of those schools is the University of West Georgia (UWG). Dr. William G. Roll, renowned poltergeist researcher, and psychic Ingo Swann were associated with the university. Last month, UWG announced its inaugural Ingo Swann Research Fellowship to be awarded in 2018.

Ingo Douglas Swann was a psychic, artist, and author. Born on September 14, 1933, Swann died on January 31, 2013. Approximately 121 boxes of papers, artifacts, memos, and photographs are housed in the Irvine Sullivan Ingram Library’s Special Collections at UWG.

Ingo Swann coined the phrase “remote viewing,” the process by which a perceiver discerns unseen “targets.” Remote viewing (RV) involves a person describing present or past details to events and locations. Swann assisted police departments in several criminal cases from 1971-1979 using RV. Swann led a colorful, artistic life. Still, there is more research on RV to be completed.

The deadline for application is May 1st. For more information, go to https://www.westga.edu/library/special-collections/swannfellowship.php.
