The Center for 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 and experiential learning.  In addition, the Center supports university student groups and advises students on how to expand their knowledge and understanding in the area of African Studies.
