For Students

Harvard undergraduates interning in Durban, South Africa, with HGHI’s ISURF Program (Summer 2012).

The Committee on African Studies is deeply committed to being a valuable resource for Harvard’s students – undergraduate and graduate, from any school or discipline – both on campus as well as on the continent.   CAS continues to expand opportunities for students to gain experience, in both formal and informal settings, in Africa through its Harvard Summer School study abroad programming, internship and fellowship offerings, and grants to support field research.  In addition, the Committee supports university student groups and advises students on how to expand their knowledge and understanding in the area of African Studies, on campus and abroad.

If you would like to be in touch with a student who has received a CAS Grant and/or participated in a study abroad or internship program, please email africa@harvard.edu.  Our CAS Peer Mentors are happy to share their experiences, lessons learned and fantastic stories!
