About Summer Foreign Language & Area Studies (FLAS) Grants
Through funding from the United States Department of Education, the Center for African Studies offers Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowships, providing tuition and stipend support for Harvard University graduate and undergraduate students interested in intensive for-credit study of an African language in the United States or abroad.
FLAS Fellowships provide for up to $5,000 towards tuition, and a $2,500 fixed living stipend. A $1,000 travel allowance is available for overseas programs, as funding allows. Candidates and alternates are selected by Faculty Committee members, and must be approved by the US Department of Education before the Fellowship can be finalized.
