Buddhadharma : Summer 2019
HALEIGH ATWOOD 93 whose work on the project is ongoing. Around the same time, BDK America established the first Numata Chair in Buddhist Studies at Numata’s alma mater, the University of California, Berkeley. The goal of this academic program, now called the Numata Programs in Buddhist Studies, is to help institutions enhance their respective Buddhist studies programs. Selected schools are given an endowment from which the interest generated can be used to support visiting professors, special lectures, and conferences. There are currently sev enteen Numata Programs at leading institutions around the world, including Harvard, Oxford, and Hamburg University. Numata also established the BDK Fellowship, which supports postgraduate students as they study in Japan for one year under the supervision of a Japanese Buddhist scholar. To continue the legacy of Numata, who passed away in 1994, the foundation continues to support various academic efforts around the world. Most recently, BDK America launched the Toshihide Numata Prize for Buddhist Literature (named after Numata’s son), which is awarded each year to the author of an academic Buddhist studies volume. The winner is presented with a $10,000 cash prize, as well as speaking opportuni ties at symposiums in California and Japan. frederiCk p. lenz foundation Before Frederick Lenz died in 1998, he had begun the process of establishing a foundation to foster the growth and development of Buddhism in America. Twenty years later, the Frederick P. Lenz Foundation supports a vast variety of organizations and initiatives, from study and community outreach to scholarships and confer ences. “We try to be really openminded,” says Norman Oberstein, CEO. “We try to come up with programs that are different, creative, and inclusive.” One of the foundation’s largest area of funding is education, supporting study, outreach, and scholarships at institutions with established Buddhist studies programs.
