These grants are available to English-speaking monks and nuns from traditional schools of Tibetan Buddhism living in North America and Europe (Great Britain), as well as to English-speaking lay practitioners.
Why are KFIPG Grants Important?
So, if you want your business idea or vision realized, and don’t have any money—or would like it to be free of strings attached—KFIPG grants are an excellent choice.
With KFIPG grants, what you put in is what you get out. The only difference is that now you have all these amazing resources available to you at no charge.
What’s more, on top of these resources being available for free, there are also many ways you can utilize them. For example, you could hire a team of experts to help you with your project by using these funds as payment. Or perhaps you just need some guidance from someone who has been through something similar before.
That’s okay too! You can use these funds to pay for mentorship sessions with people who have experience in whatever field you’re looking to break into.
Whatever it is that needs doing, KFIPG grants will help make sure that everything gets done right! How do I apply?: If you think that a grant from KFIPG is exactly what you need to bring your vision to life, head over to their website and check out their application page.
All of their guidelines are laid out clearly so there won’t be any confusion when applying. Just remember that they will only accept applications once every two years, so make sure you apply during one of those two times!
Who Can Apply?
Any ordained or lay Western Buddhist monk, nun, or teacher of Buddhism, who is either already engaged in professional teaching of Buddhism in any capacity (for instance, part-time, as a volunteer) and/or is desirous of developing his or her teaching skills through further study.
The applicant’s activity level must be sufficient to ensure completion of our intensive one-year program.
Applicants will be asked to submit examples of their own work as well as other information bearing on their teaching abilities and qualifications; they will also be interviewed by the Committee and may be asked to teach at Foundation headquarters in Kathmandu before being accepted into our program.
What’s the Application Process?
The application process is lengthy and requires you to provide extensive financial documentation, but if you can make it through, you’ll be granted $10,000 USD or more—no strings attached.
If you’re serious about Dharma practice, it may be worth your time. Keep in mind that deadlines are approaching quickly.
