Research Opportunities

Conference and Workshop Program

HCBSS occasionally entertains proposals from scholars at Stanford or other institutions to organize and host academic events at Stanford, for which the Center can provide facilities, staff support, and limited funding.                                         

Inquiries should be directed to The Ho Center for Buddhist Studies, Building 70, Room 71E, Main Quad, Stanford University, CA 94305. E-mail: buddhiststudies@stanford.edu.

Doctoral Fellows Program

Students enrolled at US universities and institutions that have an exchange agreement with Stanford may apply for a visiting appointment to take courses and conduct research at Stanford. HCBSS cannot grant visiting appointments to students from institutions that do not have such an exchange agreement.

Graduate students enrolled at these universities may take advantage of the Exchange Scholar Program: University of California at Berkeley, University of California at San Francisco, Brown University, University of Chicago, Columbia University, Cornell University, Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Princeton University, University of Pennsylvania, and Yale University. See Stanford Exchange Program for Students.

Inquiries should be directed to The Ho Center for Buddhist Studies, Building 70, Room 71E, Main Quad, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305. E-mail: buddhiststudies@stanford.edu.

Postdoctoral Fellows Program

This two-year fellowship is administered by The Ho Center for Buddhist Studies with an annual stipend of $65,000 plus up to $10,000 for moving expenses and $2,000 per year for research expenses. For further information, see The Ho Center for Buddhist Studies Postdoctoral Fellowships or email the fellowship administrator at buddhiststudies@stanford.edu.

Visiting Scholars Program

Each year HCBSS appoints a limited number of visiting scholars working in the fields of Buddhism and other Asian religions. Affiliation with the Center is also available to scholars visiting other units of Stanford. Funding for visiting scholars must come from non-Stanford sources. Visiting scholars are welcome to participate in all the Center's programs and are encouraged to offer reading groups on their materials and present their work in an annual fellows colloquium.

Inquiries should be directed to The Ho Center for Buddhist Studies, Building 70, Room 71E, Main Quad, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305. E-mail: ihl@stanford.edu.
