Karmapa Award for Buddhist Studies

 

Karmapa Award, a Great opportunity

Karmapa International Buddhist Society recently announced the introduction of the "Karmapa Award for Buddhist Studies". Since I am unaware how many people actually noticed it, I decided to bring it up here. It is a great opportunity for graduate students in the field of Tibetan and Buddhist Studies.


Awarded on an annual basis

This annual prize is awarded on behalf of the newly formed KIBS Europe e. V. in cooperation with the Institute for South Asian, Tibetan and Buddhist Studies, University of Vienna (read about the institute here). It primarily honors excellent PhD theses, but outstanding MA theses will also be considered.
