Call for Applications | The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Translation Grants in Buddhist Studies

Translation has been at the core of Buddhism since the Buddha’s instruction to his monks to teach the dharma in many languages.

These grants support translations of important Buddhist texts for the benefit of contemporary audiences who currently do not have access to them in their own languages. Applicants may propose work including, but not limited to, translation of canonical texts into modern vernaculars or the translation of scholarly works on Buddhism from one modern language into another.

Collaborative projects are welcome.

Award funds can be used as stipends for work performed (e.g., to secure release time or to pay assistants), for travel, and for related office costs, including reproduction or digitization of images. A budget is required.

There are no restrictions as to the language of the final product prepared for publication.
