Semiannual Bestowals

Awarded by

American Paranormal Press on behalf of

Fellow Earthlings Nonprofit

EIN 88-3547696

American Paranormal Magazine is committed to supporting outstanding paranormal researchers and research teams through our Semiannual Bestowals program. Twice a year, in January and July, we award a total of at least $2,000 USD in cash awards to up to three paranormal researchers or research teams who demonstrate exceptional merit and need in their field.

The cash awards are divided between the selected teams to support their investigative efforts and help advance the field of paranormal research. We believe that by recognizing and supporting the most promising investigators, we can promote greater understanding of the unexplained and contribute to the advancement of the paranormal community.

If you are a paranormal researcher or research team who is passionate about your work and in need of financial assistance, we encourage you to have someone nominate you for a feature. We welcome all nominations for those actively contributing to the field and look forward to supporting the next generation of paranormal investigators.


  • No entry or purchase necessary.

  • We do not announce names or organizations chosen to receive these particular awards due to the sensitive nature of financial matters, though they are welcome to do so and tag us on social media.

  • The bestowal is open to organizations and sole-proprietorships.

  • The awardee(s) must be a) a registered nonprofit or b) offer their service or paranormal investigation to the community at no cost.
