René Warcollier (1881 – 1962) was a French Chemical Engineer and parapsychologist. He was a founder and president of the Instiuit Métapsychique International and wrote and edited theoretical and experimental reports.


The Warcollier Prize reflects the commitment of IRVA and iRiS Intuition to the development of remote viewing and the promotion of the highest standards in remote viewing research. This year’s award includes a sum of $3,000 USD to the winning scientific experimental proposal.

The Warcollier Award winner will be announced on the IRVA website by August 15, 2019.

Announcement of the award and recipient(s), along with a summary of the proposed experiment will be published in a subsequent issue of Aperture, the newsletter of the International Remote Viewing Association.

Award recipients are expected to present findings of the funded study at the future 2020 IRVA conference, submit a research report based upon results, and draft an article on the experiment suitable for publication in Aperture.


Any competent researcher, regardless of institutional affiliation or academic background, may submit an application for the award. Employees, officers, and directors of IRVA and iRiS Intuition are not eligible for participation.
