1. Cambridge University awards Tibetan scholar with fellowship


>From Office of Tibet, London

LONDON, January 9, 1996 -- Geshe Thupten Jinpa, the principal English
translator to His Holiness the Dalai Lama has become the first Tibetan
scholar to become a fellow at University of Cambridge, one of the world's
best known educational institutions.

Geshe Jinpa, a PhD candidate at King's College, Cambridge University has
been awarded the prestigious "The Margaret Smith Research Fellowship" at
Girton College, the University of Cambridge. This fellowship begins from
October 1996 and is valid for three years.

There is a long tradition at both Cambridge and Oxford Universities to
award research fellowships to scholars with distinguished academic
prospects. The fellowships are paid academic positions with terms ranging
a year to three years. However, the first and foremost these fellowship
are awards representing, on the part of the University, the recognition of
the individual candidate's academic excellence. The candidates of these
awards are chosen through stringent selection procedures which include
both the assessment of written works and interviews.

Geshe Jinpa's topic for his doctorate degree is based on the concept of
self and reality in TsongKhapa philosophy.
