The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Grants for Critical Editions and Scholarly Translations

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 Grants for Critical Editions and Scholarly Translations support a broad range of endeavor, from the creation of critical editions (with full scholarly apparatus), to translation of canonical texts into modern vernaculars, to the translation of scholarly works on Buddhism from one modern language into another.

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