Khyentse Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded in 2001 by Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche to support all traditions of Buddhist study and practice. Since 2001, the foundation has supported individuals and institutions in more than 30 countries and has directly affected the lives of people around the world. Khyentse Foundation activities include major text preservation and translation projects, support for traditional monastic colleges in Asia, a worldwide scholarship and awards program, academic development of Buddhist studies in major universities, training and development for Buddhist leaders and teachers, Buddhist education for children, support for individual study and retreats, and more.
Khyentse Foundation Individual Practice Grants are awarded for one-year terms. They are intended to support those who wish to practice in a Buddhist tradition. KF Practice Grant recipients may apply each year for a continuing grant to fund longer-term retreats. Applications are reviewed by an international selection committee appointed by Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche. This is offered twice a year.
