Abstract

This network funding will increase opportunities for scholarly engagement in a number of ways. Postdoctoral fellows will be employed to increase the offerings of courses related to Buddhism, and eminent professors will be identified as visiting professors at partner universities, and deliver lectures on their particular area of research. Graduate students will benefit greatly through the creation of fellowships, along with an award that will be established to highlight prominent research in the area. The reach of these funds will extend to other academics through the hosting of major international conferences, and as well to the public through a Buddhist Festival at each member institution.
