The Centre provides fundings to conduct its research projects, or provides scholarships to other selected scholars for specific research projects related to Buddhism. While it is true that the Centre is interested in all Buddhist traditions, its research projects emphasize specific areas, depending on available funding. Since the Centre is based in Thailand which has a large of learning resources in terms of Buddhist Studies, one of our main projects is to do research on Thai Buddhism, either in terms of textual studies, especially doing a critical edition of Buddhist texts based on a large number of palm-leaf manuscripts in Thailand and neighboring countries in order to get a better understanding of Buddhism in Southeast Asia, or of contemporary Buddhism.
