Notes for Louis Hochberg:
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 High-School 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 discoveries. The Awards are open to students and journalists world-wide, but must be submitted in the English language. There are several different catagories for students, and one new catagory (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.
* Thesis and Dissertation Awards: An Award of up to $1000 will be given to the best accepted and approved University level Thesis or Dissertation addressing Wilhelm Reich's sociological discoveries. Submissions should be in triplicate, and may be sent anytime during the year, but must already be formally accepted by the student's home department. A copy of the student's transcripts (or Department letter) indicating acceptance of the Thesis/Dissertation must also be supplied (this can be done at a later date). This award is made only once each year, approximately two months after December 31st.
* University/College Essay Awards: An Award of up to $500 will be given for the best University/College level student research paper, addressing Wilhelm Reich's sociological discoveries. Maximum length of 50 pages. Must be typed and presented in triplicate, no later than May 15th for the Spring/Summer competition, or December 15th for the Fall/Winter competition. Winners will be notified approximately two months after the deadline dates.
* High School Essay Awards: An Award of up to $500 will be given for the best High School student essay paper addressing Wilhlem Reich's sociological discoveries. Maximum length of 25 pages. Must be typed and presented in triplicate, no later than May 15th for the Spring/Summer competition, or December 15th for the Fall/Winter competition. Winners will be notified approximately two months after the deadline dates.
* University Thesis/Dissertation Improvement and Implementation Grants: An Award of up to $1500 is available for undertaking original graduate-level research addressing Wilhelm Reich's sociological discoveries. Submitted student proposals must be in triplicate, and include a letter from the student's home department (or their committee chairperson) indicating the formal acceptance of the proposal. The proposal must be accompanied by a cover letter expressing the amount needed and how it would be spent ($1,500 maximum).
* For All Student Award Competitions written proof of student status must be provided, with full address, telephone, e-mail and so forth. Winners will be chosen by a panel of three judges whose decision will be final.
* Specific topics are open, up to the student's own choice and interests, but must directly and specifically address Wilhelm Reich's considerable sociological discoveries as the major theme. (Click here for a list of suggested topics) Clarity is an important factor, along with factual representations of Reich's works, with relevant critique.
A recommended bibliography on Reich's works, with a listing of previously accepted university dissertations and theses, is available by clicking here.
NEW CATEGORY: For Outstanding Research and Journalism, appearing in Popular or Academic Publications
This new category of the Hochberg Awards is designed to encourage research and writing on Wilhelm Reich's discoveries, with subsequent publication of accurate articles in the popular press and/or academic journals. This Hochberg Award is open to any article focused upon Reich's sociological and natural scientific discoveries which is published in either a regional and/or national publication (newspaper, magazine, journal). As with the student essays, accuracy and clarity are central factors, as well as new findings on the subject of Reich's work. Submissions must include one complete copy of the publication in question and two photocopies of the article to be judged, along with the publication and author addresses. Submissions need not be made by the author -- any genuine article which openly and accurately discusses Reich's work can be submitted by any reader or subscriber, though the Award would go only to the author. Award amounts can be up to $1000 depending upon the accuracy and breadth of the article, and the circulation of the publication, as determined by our panel of judges. Articles can be short or long, major publications or minor op-ed items, in virtually any publication ranging from local newspapers to national magazines. Rules and Restrictions:
* Submissions will not be accepted from publications already devoted to the topic of orgonomy;
* Internet articles are not qualified;
* Submissions must come from English-language publications;
* Publication must occur after October 1st, 1999.
* One original copy of the publication must be submitted, along with the author's and publisher's contact information (address, telephone, email).
* Submissions can be made by anyone, and not necessarily by the author or publisher. If you see a good article discussing Reich's discoveries, send a copy of the publication along for consideration.
The goal of this latter Hochberg Award category is to stimulate a greater accuracy in public and academic representations of Wilhelm Reich's work, which continues to be badly misrepresented.
