The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Program in Buddhist Studies

The American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) announces the fourth year of an initiative supporting research and teaching in Buddhist studies, funded by a three-year grant of $6.7 million from The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation. In cooperation with the Foundation, ACLS offers an integrated set of fellowship and grant competitions that will expand the understanding and interpretation of Buddhist thought in scholarship and society, strengthen international networks of Buddhist studies, and increase the visibility of innovative currents in those studies.

The Foundation offers five competitions to support research and teaching.

The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Dissertation Fellowships in Buddhist Studies
The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowships in Buddhist Studies
The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Collaborative Research Fellowships in Buddhist Studies
The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Research Fellowships in Buddhist Studies
The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation New Professorships in Buddhist Studies

These are global competitions. There are no restrictions as to the location of work proposed or the citizenship of applicants. The final products of  research supported may be in any language. It is especially important, therefore, to publicize the program in Asia, both because Asia is the historical home of Buddhist traditions and because it is the site of outstanding contemporary scholarship.

Information about these fellowships and grants is now available in Burmese, Chinese (Cantonese and Mandarin), Hindi, Japanese, Khmer, Korean, Lao, Mongolian, Nepali, Sinhala, Tamil, Thai, and Vietnamese.  The translations will circulate information about the program more widely, including via local Internet search engines.

Although the final products of research may be in any language, all applications must be submitted in English.

Applications must be submitted through the ACLS Online Fellowship Application system (OFA). Applications will be available by August 31, 2016.
