The Henry Luce Foundation has awarded a $500,000 grant to the Thich Nhat Hanh Program for Engaged Buddhism at Union Theological Seminary (UTS). The grant “supports the development of new models of teaching and learning, research and publication, leadership development, and educational program design.”
“We are so grateful to Luce for their support. Their shared understanding of the importance of interreligious engagement here at Union is deeply encouraging,” said Rev. Kosen Greg Snyder, senior director and assistant director of Buddhist Studies at UTS in a statement from the organization.
The Henry Luce Foundation, which was founded by American magazine magnate Henry R. Luce, invests in public knowledge. Including the grant to UTS, the Henry Luce Foundation awarded a total of $8,955,000 in grants to 28 organizations in this announcement.
