Doctoral Scholarships – DREST

The Research Center actively promotes research in areas relevant to Buddhist and Contemplative Studies, co-funding four doctoral research projects at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, specifically in the Doctoral School Of Religious Studies (DREST).

The research areas are as follows:

  1. Buddhism and the Environment: Historical and Modern Case Studies.
  2. Theravāda, Mahāyāna, and Vajrayāna: Texts, Rituals, and Practitioners.
  3. Buddhism and the Modern World: Engagement with Analytic Philosophy, Philosophy of Mind, Philosophy of Language, Epistemology, Phenomenology, and Contemplative Studies.
  4. Buddhism and Technological Innovation: Historical and Modern Case Studies.

As part of the PhD program, the doctoral students will have the opportunity to engage in research and educational activities in collaboration with the Research Center. This partnership provides them access to both the University’s resources and those provided by the Italian Buddhist Union.
