Launched in 2014, The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Program in Buddhist Studies supports research and teaching in Buddhist studies. With funding from The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation, ACLS offers an integrated set of fellowship and grant competitions to expand the understanding and interpretation of Buddhist thought in scholarship and society, strengthen international networks of Buddhist studies, and increase the visibility of innovative currents in those studies.

2019 marks the Fortieth Anniversary of the foundation of the International Association for Tibetan Studies at St. John’s College, Oxford, under the leadership of the late Michael Aris. In celebration of the steady growth of the IATS that has ensued, the 15th IATS Seminar was held Paris, France, from Sunday 7 to Saturday 13 July 2019.
The seminar is organized collaboratively by the INALCO, the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), the École Pratique des Hautes Études (EPHE), and the French School of Asian Studies (EFEO). The members of the convening committee are Fabienne Jagou (EFEO), Matthew Kapstein (EPHE), Françoise Pommaret (CNRS), Françoise Robin (INALCO), and Nicolas Sihlé (CNRS).
The principal venue for the Seminar was the National Institute of Asian Languages and Civilizations (INALCO) in Paris’s 13th District.
Ce séminaire est porté par le CRCAO et soutenu par le GIS Asie. Deux chercheurs réputés : Per Kvaerne, professeur émérite de l’Université d’Oslo et Dan Martin, de l’Université de Jérusalem, partageront leurs recherches sur le texte historique le plus ancien du Bon intitulée Grags pa gling grags (GPLG). L'événement aura lieu à la Maison de l’Asie, 22 avenue du Président Wilson, le 27 et le 28 mars 2019.

An interdisciplinary group of researchers based at SOAS University of London, Yale University, and University of California San Diego are preparing a collaborative research program bringing together insights and frameworks from economics, political science, and development studies in order to explore a set of operationally relevant research questions to inform the programming of a major development partner.
This group is currently seeking a senior researcher (Post-doctoral) to help drive forward this research agenda.

In Nepal's Mustang District, on the right bank of the Kali Gandaki river facing the large settlement of Tshug (Chusang), is a low hill known as Gönpa Gang, the "convent ridge." Standing on the ridge are the remains of a Buddhist site, Künzang Chöling. Until recently, nothing was known about the building beyond the fact that it had once been a nunnery, and it is hard now to imagine that a local ruler in the 17th century, awed by its majestic proportions and its exquisite paintings, exclaimed that it was "the jewel in the crown of the realm." This book brings to light a forgotten gem of Nepal's architectural and artistic heritage, while the archives of the community offer a window onto the lives of the lama who built it "as a blessing for the land," and of the nuns for whom it was a centre of spiritual activity for almost three centuries.
