The American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) invites applications for The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Program in Buddhist Studies. In cooperation with the Foundation, ACLS offers an integrated set of fellowship and grant competitions to expand the understanding and interpretation of Buddhist thought in scholarship and society, to strengthen international networks of Buddhist studies, and to increase the visibility of innovative currents in those studies.

Two-year stipends to recent recipients of the PhD for residence at a university for research, writing, and teaching
Collaborative Research Fellowships
Support for teams of two or more scholars working on interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary projects
One-year stipends for scholars who hold a PhD degree, with no restrictions on time from the PhD
Multi-year grants to colleges and universities to establish or expand teaching in Buddhist studies
These are global competitions. There are no restrictions as to the location of work proposed, the citizenship of applicants, or the languages of the final written product. Applications must be submitted in English. Program information and applications are available here.
