Our translation grants offer scholars and practitioners an opportunity to work on translating the Tibetan canonical literature and so contribute to the traditional Buddhist ways of scholarship and practice. To date, we have awarded over 165 grants to translation teams around the world, totaling over US $8.5M.

As an 84000 translator, you will receive project-specific support from our experienced editorial team, access to 84000’s digital resources and tools, and join a global initiative to unlock the wisdom contained within the Tibetan Buddhist canon, sharing its treasures with the world.

Currently 84000 offers grants to enable scholars and translators to research and translate texts from the Tibetan Kangyur, as listed in our “Suggested source texts for translation” [G2] below, and to compile auxiliary materials such as introduction, glossary, and notes.

The current grants round is open for applications from January 1 to February 28, 2023.
