The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Collaborative Research Fellowships in Buddhist Studies

Loading...

The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Program in Buddhist Studies offers an articulated set of fellowship and grant competitions that will expand the understanding and interpretation of Buddhist thought in scholarship and society, strengthen international networks of Buddhist studies, and increase the visibility of innovative currents in those studies.

The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Collaborative Research Fellowships support interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary work encouraging international and multilingual projects. It welcomes projects that relate different Buddhist traditions to each other or that relate scholarship on the broad Buddhist tradition to contemporary concerns in other academic fields.

This program is made possible by a generous grant from The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation.
