Horst Koch Memorial Scholarship

Horst Koch Memorial Scholarship

RYI’s close friend and highly respected colleague, Horst Koch, played a central role in the development and launch of RYI’s Online Learning program in 2009 and was a mainstay of IT support across the whole institution. Sadly, Horst, passed away in Nepal during the fall of 2011. Horst was passionate about RYI’s potential to offer precious Dharma teachings to all those with a sincere interest and in memoriam, RYI has established a scholarship in his name.

The award covers partial tuition fee for a semester-long online learning course in the interactive format.  

Eligibility: who can apply?

This scholarship is intended for those who would not normally be able to afford to take such a course.
