The 2014 Dalai Lama Trust Graduate Scholarship Recipients

The Graduate Scholarship Selection Committee of the Dalai Lama Trust is pleased to announce the 2014 recipients of the Dalai Lama Trust Graduate Scholarships.

Every year the trust receives applications from outstanding Tibetan students who are engaged in graduate level studies. The number and quality of the applications reflect the continuing progress of the Tibetan community and the positive development through His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama’s advice and encouragement to young Tibetan students to engage in professional and high level studies.

The students from Tibetan refugee schools have gained admission to some of the top universities in the world, showing high standards of education and clearly demonstrating that our schools are producing outstanding students. This year's and previous years' recipients are engaged in high level graduate studies in science, humanities and social sciences at major international universities. We would like to congratulate this year's recipients.

The Trust received a large number of outstanding applications and regrets being unable to fund each and every applicant.

The Dalai Lama Trust was founded in 2009 by His Holiness the XIVth Dalai Lama. The Trust was established to support the advancement and welfare of the Tibetan people, the culture and heritage of the ancient civilization of Tibet, and the promotion of the deep rooted values associated with its culture and people.

Among a number of charitable activities, the Dalai Lama Trust supports the preservation of Tibetan culture and the development of leadership and educational opportunities for young Tibetans. The Trust also seeks to support initiatives that encourage a sense of universal responsibility in the global community, and the advancement of dialogue between science and religion. The Trust regards the cultivation of ahimsa and nonviolence as a powerful means toward both individual growth and broader social change. The Trust also provides relief and assistance to underserved communities of all faiths and origins.

The Dalai Lama Trust is funded by charitable contributions made by the founder and by the public. The Trust is a U.S. nonprofit charitable organization registered in the State of New York. It is governed by a board of trustees, chaired by the founder.
