Translator training is essential to ensuring that there is a continuous stream of proficient translators to fulfill the long-term (100-year) vision of 84000. In order to support the work of 84000, Khyentse Foundation (KF) is actively working to train the next generation of Dharma translators:s
1. Establishment of the KF Translation Studies Scholarships to support students in advanced degree programs in translation studies and Buddhist philosophy with the express purpose of training Dharma translators for the future. All aspiring translators are encouraged to apply.
2. Working with major universities such as University of California-Berkeley, Hamburg University, Rangjung Yeshe Institute, Rangjung Yeshe Gomde California, University of Vienna etc. to strengthen their translation studies programs.
