Naropa University announces Chögyam Trungpa Scholarship Fund

Naropa University has announced a new scholarship fund in honor of the university’s founder, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Three scholarships will be available each year, for prospective students who show “exceptional academic promise.” $100,000 will fully endow the scholarship, but the university hopes to raise at least $1 million as a tribute to its founder, and to help students for years to come.

Donations of any amount are welcome — to make a donation, click here. Donors who give at least $1,000 will have their name listed on a plaque in Naropa’s historic Lincoln Building. Those who give $2,500 will also receive the first volume of The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma, The Path of Individual Liberation, and those who give $7,500 will receive the deluxe three-volume set of the Profound Treasury, signed by editor Judith Lief and stamped with Chögyam Trungpa’s official stamp. For more information about the scholarship, call Naropa’s Office of Development at 303-546-3594.
