Scholarship Description

Louis Hochberg, M.S.W., was a social worker with a life-long dedication to Wilhelm Reich’s discoveries. He established the Hochberg Awards through the Orgone Biophysical Research Lab in 1997, shortly before his death. OBRL continues with the Hochberg Awards into the New Century, with programs providing cash awards and recognition to College and University students in several categories, and to published authors and journalists, for research and open-theme essays which are topically focused upon Wilhelm Reich’s sociological and/or experimental biophysical orgone energy (or life-energy) discoveries. The Awards are open to students and journalists worldwide but must be submitted in the English language. There are several different categories for students, and one new category (described below) recently opened up to both students and non-students alike, for the publication of accurate articles in popular media (newspapers, magazines) or academic journals.

Donor: Orgone Biophysical Research Laboratory

James DeMeo has been investigating the work of the late Dr. Wilhelm Reich since 1970, and founded Orgone Biophysical Research Laboratory in 1978. With cooperative assistance from a network of professionals and institutes supportive of Wilhelm Reich’s original discoveries, OBRL has grown to become one of the world’s primary centers for genuine and uncompromised research and educational programs focused upon Orgonomy, the science of orgone (life) energy functions in nature, as developed by Reich in the first half of the 20th Century. Currently, Dr. DeMeo’s research has been focused upon additional laboratory confirmations of Reich’s original findings, as well as experimental investigations of the orgone energy as a motor force, and its role in gravitation.
