Emory-Tibet partnership receives $1M grant

Emory University was awarded a $1 million grant from the Dalai Lama Trust to support the endowment fund of The Robert A. Paul Emory-Tibet Science Initiative.

The grant will help fund a six-year science curriculum in major Tibetan monastic institutions. The curriculum will include creation of a video library and more than two dozen textbooks and summer classes taught by Emory and other faculty from U.S. institutions.

Since its founding in 2007, the initative has sent Emory faculty to India each summer to offer six-week science courses to 90 Tibetan monks and nuns, developed a series of bilingual Tibetan-English science books and hosted two groups of monastic science scholars for science education at Emory.
