Education Scholarship Fund
Supporting Talent and Creative Initiative
Having Dharma knowledge and understanding Dharma is like a clear crystal; not only that, it is enriched with compassion and a special attitude, like bodhisattvas who take full responsibility alone to liberate countless sentient beings from the most unbearable oceans of suffering of samara.
Qualified teachers and practitioners are essential to the successful transmission of the Dharma around the world. FPMT Education Services has developed a wide range of educational programs to meet the needs of every student, and continues to develop new programs that preserve the lineage and educate the next generation.
The Education Scholarship Fund provides the funding needed to create our comprehensive educational programs and helps financially FPMT Centers and students enrolled in FPMT programs around the world, these students are on track to become FPMT Dharma teachers, meditators, and practitioners.
A few of the projects we have recently supported include:
- Creation of the Masters Program at Istituto Lama Tzong Khapa, Italy
- Creation of the Basic Program, now hosted at twenty-nine FPMT centers around the world and available as a homestudy program.
- Scholarships to Masters Program students from France, USA, Canada, and Italy
- Scholarships to students of Maitripa College’s Advanced Buddhist Studies Program, USA
- Creation of Discovering Buddhism, now hosted at over 100 FPMT centers around the world, and available as a homestudy program.
- Teacher Training Workshop in Europe
- Basic Program pilot course at Chenrezig Institute, Australia
My years at Maitripa College have been an invaluable and transforming experience for me personally, spiritually, and academically. It is only because of FPMT’s scholarship that I have been able to receive this education. My deep gratitude goes to the inexhaustibly kind guide Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche and to the work of FPMT for offering such generous support to me and fellow students.

In Buddhism, we are not particularly interested in the quest for intellectual knowledge alone. We are much more interested in understanding what’s happening here and now, in comprehending our present experience, what we are at this very moment, our fundamental nature.
