In 2015, Jnanasukha Foundation created a scholarship program to further study and practice in the Nyingma tradition, especially the Dudjom New Treasures (Tersar) and The Dakini Heart Essence (Khandro Thuk Thik). Awards up to US$500 are available twice a year.

We welcome applications from individuals around the world. Preference is given to those who have studied and practiced Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhism for at least 10 years, who have completed or will complete the traditional three-year retreat and to monastics.

Scholarships are awarded for attending teaching programs or for individual or group retreats under the supervision of a lineage lama. Preference given to Dudjom and Nyingma affiliations. 

Scholarships are not awarded for expenses such as meals and transportation.

Scholarships are paid to the program's host organization, not the scholarship recipient. 

Applicants must demonstrate financial need.

Applicants may be asked to schedule a video conference, submit a letter of recommendation from their teacher and/or submit further documentation.

Applications are accepted online from May 1-June 15 and September 15 - October 31. Candidates will be notified of awards on July 1 and December 1.
