IONS Is Now Accepting Nominations for the 2021 Awards

IONS is seeking nominations for the 2021 Consciousness in Action NextGen Awards.

We are looking forward to supporting another selection of next generation researchers, practitioners, and visionaries striving to make a positive impact with an expanded vision of reality and creative solutions to the world’s challenges. While there are many awards and scholarships for young activists and leaders, few of these are centered around consciousness, and the role it plays in transformation, healing, and exploration.

We will select three winners to each receive a $1,000 prize. Do you know an exceptional leader bringing noetics into their work? Is there an inspiring friend or teacher in your life who’s committed to the healing and transformation of the world? Please consider nominating them! Please note, you can nominate yourself as well!

To be eligible, a nominee must:

  • Incorporate noetic principles into their work
  • Be 35 years old or younger
  • Make a positive impact in their community
