Individual Practice Grant
Khyentse Foundation Individual Practice Grants support individuals who wish to practice dharma. These grants might be used for an individual or group retreat, for teachings, or for other kinds of Buddhist practice. KF accepts applications from practitioners and retreatants from all traditions, schools, and sects of Buddhism.
Applications are reviewed by an international selection committee appointed by Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche.
KF accepts Individual Practice Grant applications twice a year, from December 15 to January 15 and from June 15 to July 15. Applications are due by midnight Eastern Time on the last day of the application period and late submissions will not be accepted. Applicants will be notified by May 15 and November 15, respectively.
KF Practice Grants generally range from US$500 to $5,000, and occasionally more, depending on the program.
DJKR on Creating Practice Environment
Practitioners often come to me worried that they have lost the inspiration to practice the Dharma. This is one of the biggest challenges. But the fact that you consider this as a problem is very good, because that means you have an awkward feeling. Awkwardness is a good sign. If you are feeling awkward, Buddhanature is in action.
– Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche
