Shang Shung Institute of America
School of Tibetan Medicine
The Khenpo Tsenam Rinpoche Scholarship Fund
Request for Applications for 2011-2012 Academic Year
Deadline: June 30, 2011
The first scholarship fund to support students in the Shang Shung Institute School of Tibetan Medicine has been established.
In honor of our lineage of Tibetan Medicine, the fund has been named after Khenpo Tsenam Rinpoche, one of Tibet's foremost doctors, credited with the revival of Tibetan Medicine within Tibet. He was the teacher of Dr. Phuntsog Wangmo and many of the Shang Shung Institute’s visiting faculty members. For more information about Khenpo Tsenam Rinpoche, please see his biography here.
The scholarship fund was established by a grant from J. Crow Co., in 2010
with an invitation for matching contributions. In 2011, the scholarship will be funded in the same way, with another generous matching grant opportunity from the J. Crow Co. Please help us reach our target match of $2500, for a total of $5000 towards the continuation of the scholarship fund. The deadline for reaching the challenge amount given by the donor is: May 9, 2011.
