All classes will be held in English, no Chinese is required. Men and women of any academic major or any nationality are eligible to apply. All expenses in China are generously covered, so selection of 60 participants is highly competitive, applications now being accepted.

This semi-annual program offers scholars, religious leaders, faculty, graduate students, and advanced undergraduates opportunities for direct and intensive engagement with important historical centers of Chinese Buddhism and culture.
