The Khyentse Foundation Award is given annually to undergraduate or graduate students, selected by the Faculty, for recognition of distinction and hard work in the field of Buddhist studies.
The award promotes the non-sectarian understanding of early Buddhism and the study of the involvement of Buddhist teachings in various academic fields, in addition to religious studies, such as literature, linguistics, philosophy, history, and cultural studies.
In the past, Khyentse Foundation awarded scholarships to graduate students at the Faculty of Arts who studied the Tipitaka and Buddhist culture in the fields of linguistics, literature, folklore, Buddhist studies, and Thai studies. Founded in 2001 by Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, the Khyentse Foundation is a non-profit organization whose key aim is to support and enhance Buddhist studies worldwide.
