Funding brief: Many people are seeking ways to preserve and promote the Dharma and working to increase Dharma activity around the world in creative and long-lasting ways. For requests that fall outside the criteria for Buddhist Studies Scholarships, Individual Practice Grants, or other awards, 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. Have you written a Buddhist short story for kids? They’d like to read it. Do you have a proposal for research on a Buddhist topic, a Buddhist television program, or some other activity? Tell us why your idea would help the Dharma flourish.
The Ashoka Grants Committee considers applications from a broad array of 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.
