The Intermountain Consortium for Asia and Pacific Studies (IMCAPS) is an association formed by BYU’s Asian Studies Program and the University of Utah’s Asia Center. IMCAPS promotes the study of Asian language and culture to deepen transcontinental ties and enhance Americans’ career potential in international affairs.
IMCAPS partners with CSE to award Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) scholarships to students interested in improving their European and Asian language skills. FLAS full tuition scholarships are granted to both graduates and undergraduates, regardless of major or program. All scholarships include stipends from $2,500–$15,000. For more information, see flas.byu.edu.
BYU Asian Studies (AS) provides funding for Asia-centric course development, faculty research, and conferences. Additionally, AS reaches out to the community with lectures and performances on campus, the Dual Immersion Chinese language program in elementary schools, and K–12 curriculum creation.
