Edgar Cayce 2018 Scholarship Program Accepting Applications

Virginia Beach, Va. – Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. is now soliciting and accepting applications for the organization’s annual Edgar Cayce Scholarship Program.  Eligible Virginia Beach high school seniors are encouraged to apply for the $1,000 2018 scholarship award. Student applicants will have been accepted to a college undergraduate level curriculum and will have earned a minimum 3.0 GPA (or appropriate equivalent of scholastic achievement). The application deadline is April 30, 2018. Download the application form (.pdf) from (search “scholarship”) or at (search “Edgar Cayce”).

This scholarship is intended to give financial assistance to students who will be majoring in a course curriculum related to holistic health, philosophy, social work, personal spirituality, and/or quality of life through mind-body-spirit integration. Each application is evaluated on multiple factors, including academic achievement, community service, and completion of a 500 to 650 word essay based on the Cayce principle “Make the world a better place in which to live.” A.R.E. staff members, volunteers, and their family members, are not eligible to apply.

Now in its 11th year, the Edgar Cayce Scholarship Program was created thanks to the generosity of A.R.E. member Nancy Clark and the George Clark Foundation. Since its inception, the program has awarded more than $25,000 in local scholarships. The award recipients will be recognized by A.R.E. staff and volunteers in a brief ceremony, and featured in Venture Inward, the A.R.E.’s quarterly membership magazine.

Edgar Cayce founded the non-profit Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.) in 1931, to explore spirituality, holistic health, intuition, dream interpretation, psychic development, reincarnation, and ancient mysteries—all subjects that frequently came up in the more than 14,000 documented psychic readings given by Cayce, who died in 1945. The mission of A.R.E. is simply to help people around the world change their lives for the better through the ideas and information found in the Cayce readings. The Virginia Beach headquarters is a popular site for locals and tourists with free daily lectures, a Health Center & Spa, the Cayce/Reilly® School of Massage, an extensive metaphysical library, a meditation garden, a stone labyrinth, and a bookstore and gift shop. Visitors from around the world come to experience conferences featuring speakers on subjects like ancient mysteries, holistic health, and spiritual development. The campus is also home to Atlantic University (AU), which offers two masters degrees (Transpersonal Studies and Leadership Studies) through an online platform, as well as continuing education and certificate programs. Through A.R.E.’s many programs, services, publications, and membership outreach, individuals from all walks of life and religious backgrounds are provided with tools for personal transformation and healing at all levels—body, mind, and spirit.
