This annual summer institute convenes young Asian scholars of culture, religion, and theology for a one-month program of reflection, dialogue, and writing. Participants undertake research and writing in the broad area of Asian cultures and theologies and complete a working paper while in residence. IASACT was founded in 2004. It is now administered by the Divinity School of Chung Chi College of The Chinese University of Hong Kong.

IASACT 2018 will be held from June 14 – July 14, 2018. The application deadline is January 26. For a copy of the IASACT 2018 brochure, click here.
