The Khyentse Foundation Ashoka Grants
For requests that fall outside the criteria for Advanced Study Scholarships, KF Individual Practice Grants or other awards, the Khyentse Foundation has created a fund for special project grants. This program identifies and supports organizations and individuals working to increase Dharma activity around the world.
The Ashoka Grants Committee considers applications from a broad array of promising organizations and individuals who are actively engaged in projects related to Buddhism. The only applications that are not considered are applications requesting funds for building and construction projects; applications that are incomplete or that do not adequately explain the scope of the project; and applications that have no relevance to Buddhism or Buddhist activity. Past awards have gone to a wide variety of recipients, from children's educational organizations to organizations dedicated to helping incarcerated people through Buddhist meditation.Applications can be submitted twice a year, from January 15 - February 15 and from July 15 - August 15.For more information or to apply. please visit the scholarship provider's website.
