The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation initiated a program – channeled through ACLS – in Buddhist Studies last year, supporting dissertation fellowships, postdoctoral fellowships, collaborative research grants and distinguished visiting professorships.
The list of the first 23 grant recipients can be found here (among them is also Aleix Ruiz-Falqués). The second round of grants was just announced here; the deadline for applications is 8 October 2014.
Note that these are global competitions. There are no restrictions as to the location of work proposed or the citizenship of applicants.
