Naropa University offers the Naropa Grants in the United States with the goal of making higher education accessible to all talented and deserving students.
For the academic year 2022-2023, the grants are given to full-time, degree-seeking international students who have a high financial need.
Naropa University is a Boulder, Colorado-based private university. Tibetan Buddhist teacher Chögyam Trungpa named it after the 11th-century Indian Buddhist sage Naropa, an abbot of Nalanda. The university describes itself as Buddhist-inspired, ecumenical, and nonsectarian rather than calling itself Buddhist. Naropa encourages non-traditional activities such as meditation in addition to traditional teaching methods.
