The details of the program, as stated in a late November email, are as follows:
The dates have been set for the Namo Buddha Tibetan Language Program. This year a nine-week Beginner’s Tibetan Program from June 13 to August 15, 2014 is planned to be held at the beautiful and sacred location of Thrangu Tashi Yangtse Monastery in Namo Buddha, Nepal, http://www.namobuddha.com.
The classes will be taught by Lotsawa David Karma Choephel and a team of monks and nuns from Thrangu Monastery trained in the latest techniques for teaching Tibetan as a second language. Enrollment is limited to no more than 10 participants in this first class, allowing for individualized instruction and conversation practice.
The cost of the course is US $1520, which includes tuition and room and board in single accommodations.
If you are interested in applying or have further questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now I just have to come up with the funds to be able to attend... no small feat for a single father going back to college.
Aside from the Khyentse Foundation and Rigpa (which I'm already sending applications to), does anyone know of other resources for grants, scholarships, or even individual sponsors for someone aspiring to become a Tibetan translator?
So as to cast the net a little wider, perhaps such resources need not be specific to Buddhism or Tibetan, but simply geared towards helping fund foreign language studies and acquisition. Do you know of any?
PLEASE HELP!!! Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
