Naropa University offers the Naropa Grants in the United States with the purpose of making higher education accessible to all brilliant and deserving students.
For the academic year 2022-2023, the funds are given to full-time, degree-seeking international students who have a high financial need.
Naropa Institution is a Boulder, Colorado-based private university. Tibetan Buddhist teacher Chögyam Trungpa named it after the 11th-century Indian Buddhist philosopher Naropa, an abbot of Nalanda.
The university portrays itself as Buddhist-inspired, ecumenical, and nonsectarian rather than calling itself Buddhist. Naropa emphasizes non-traditional activities such as meditation in addition to traditional teaching techniques.
Why should you enroll at Naropa University? This is where academic rigor meets experiential learning. Where your brain is tested and your potential is realized. Where you may find the work you’re passionate about and apply it to change the world.
All Naropa University students are supported by the On-Campus Counseling Center in their general well-being and transformational path.
