An Interview with Professor Pauline Yu—President of the American Council of Learned Societies

The overall aim of the collaboration with the foundation is to establish a global network of scholars in #Buddhist Studies. “I think it is a very exciting goal,” enthused Pauline. Therefore, unlike most ACLS fellowships, which are restricted to American citizens, the fellowships supported by the Ho foundation are open to all: anyone can apply from anywhere, and work at any location. http://newlotus.buddhistdoor.com/en/news/d/41936
