Travel, Study, Engage Asia in Spring

In Spring 2017, the CapAsia group intends to explore and carry out small projects in newly developing Myanmar and post-earthquake Nepal, with a brief stopover in Thailand. Open to all majors from any school.
CapAsia is a nationally and internationally recognized unique study-abroad program. The participants truly immerse in the socially, culturally, and historically different Asia and learn by doing collaborative projects with leading universities in the region. As you learn about Asian cultures, make local friends, and help communities in achieve higher quality of life on their own terms, this life-changing experience will help you substantively situate yourself in today’s changing world. CapAsia has received several national and international awards and the directors were nominated for two national awards.

It is one of the low-cost foreign field studies, definitely worth the money, and would do enormous justice to a loan that you may have to take. The program fee, $7,200, will cover long-distance travel and lodging costs. The rest, cost of living in Asia, is minimal, a few hundred dollars. In addition, students pay tuition fees at Ball State's off-campus rate. You are eligible to use most scholarships and financial aid.

Please join us on any Wednesday at 4;30pm at the planning conference room to learn more about this lifetime opportunity. There will be free pizza!
