Grants & Scholarships

Supporting Buddhist Study and practice is at the heart of Khyentse Foundation’s mission, and our grants and scholarships programs are the way we connect with you and learn about your work. There are a number of ways to apply, and we support a wide range of dharma studies, practice, and activities.

Our applicants are Buddhist teachers, students, scholars, educators, translators, practitioners, and retreatants. In the nonsectarian spirit of the Khyentse lineage, we support all Buddhist traditions from all parts of the world. Each application is reviewed by international review committees, appointed by Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche.

Are you seeking financial assistance for a Buddhist studies program? To complete work on a translation project? To take time for retreat? To start a Buddhist education program for children? For a grassroots effort in India or Nepal? Or do you have your own ideas about how to bring the dharma to the world? Consider applying for one of our grants or scholarships.


Applications open at 12am Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) on the first day of the application period and are due by 11:59pm UTC on the last day of the application period. Late submissions will not be accepted.
