Translation Grants

Since 2011, 84000 has been awarding grants to translation teams around the world, allowing translators and scholars to work on this canonical literature full-time, and help make our vision a reality.

Our grants catalyze the work of translators and scholars, so that together we can help to keep traditional Buddhist scholarship and practice alive. We have two grant cycles per year, open for applications in January-February and June-July.

Please visit the Grants page for a list of selected source texts, guidelines, the application form, and for more information.
