The Dalai Lama Trust, Washington, DC, is pleased to announce its sixth round of annual graduate scholarship grant for the academic year 2016. Ten to fifteen exceptional candidates of Tibetan descent will be selected to receive scholarship awards of up to US$10,000.00.

The purpose of the scholarship program is to further the human capital development of the Tibetan people by supporting the pursuit of excellence among Tibetan students in a field of graduate studies of their choice.

In order to apply, applicants must provide official documentation of enrollment or acceptance into a graduate degree program in a university in Europe, Australia or the Americas. Applicants must also demonstrate proof of Tibetan heritage. Tibetan students residing in India/Nepal are especially encouraged to apply.

Current awardees of the program who wish to renew their scholarship are required to submit a separate renewal application.
