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.
Buddhist Studies Scholarships are intended to support students who are in or plan to enroll in a program in Buddhist studies. Khyentse Foundation scholarships are awarded for one-year terms. Scholarship recipients may apply each year for a continuing support to fund longer-term studies. Applications are open for teachers, students, practitioners, scholars, and translators, from all traditions, schools, and sects of Buddhism. This is offered twice a year.
