The Rockefeller Center Senior Honors Thesis Grants program provides funding of up to $1,000 for undergraduate students writing a senior honors thesis in the social sciences.

Josephina Lin, a member of the Class of 2019 was awarded a grant in May. Lin studies Anthropology and Psychology at Dartmouth, and she is interested in communicating across lines of difference and trying to understand other cultures.

Lin’s thesis examines Buddhist educational practices at two sites in Kathmandu, Nepal and how they share their teachings, how they engage with western audiences, and how they promote certain identities through their educational practices. She became interested in this topic after taking a class about Buddhism in which she learned about contemporary manifestations of Buddhism and new issues that are arising within the tradition.

Lin hopes to contribute to scholarship about modem forms of Buddhist practice.
