Graduate Funding Opportunities

One of the primary sources of graduate student funding through the Center is the FLAS fellowship, which are made possible by the Center’s Title VI grant from the U.S. Department of Education. In addition, generous contributions from faculty and alumni have made it possible for the Center to offer summer pre-dissertation research grants in Africa for graduate students. The Center is also able to provide a number of travel awards to support students attending academic conferences and workshops.

Foreign Language & Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowships

Graduate students may apply for academic year and summer FLAS fellowships to study an African language in conjunction with their African-area studies courses. The call for applications for this award is in the Spring semester every year.
