KIM QUANG BUDDHIST YOUTH SCHOLARSHIP
HỌC BỔNG GIA ÐÌNH PHẬT TỬ KIM QUANG
The purpose of the Kim Quang Buddhist Youth Scholarship is designed to provide a small financial reward and encouragement to students who demonstrate commitment to GÐPT, academic excellence, and a willingness to contribute to the betterment of their families, schools, and community. One of our goals at GÐPT is to instill the principle that happiness and social well-being of each individual, our families, and communities will depend upon the daily practice and application of the basic teaching of Buddha – compassion and wisdom; commitment to excellence; and service to others. Thus, we believe this scholarship will be served as an encouragement to continue these efforts and a small reward for the diligent practice of the Buddha’s teaching.
Học Bổng GĐPT Kim Quang nhằm khích lệ tinh thần và một chút tài chánh để khuyến khích những đoàn sinh hiểu biết những căn bản của GĐPT, và có lý tưởng phục vụ cho gia đình, học đường, và xã hội. Ở GĐPT, chúng tôi hiểu là hạnh phúc và an lạc của mỗi cá nhân, gia đình, và xã hội sẽ tùy thuộc vào nền tảng giáo lý căn bản của Đạo Phật - Từ bi, Trí tuệ - và cũng tùy thuộc vào những người có tinh thần phục vụ cho lợi ích nhân sinh. Những nguyên tắc trên là kim chỉ nam của tổ chức GĐPT; đã được hướng dẫn và dạy dỗ cho đoàn sinh ở mọi lứa tuổi. Vì vậy cho nên chúng tôi tin là học bổng này sẽ hỗ trợ các em tiếp tục lý tưởng phục vụ trên.
