National Resource Center

The Center is a current National Resource Center in African Studies with Title VI funding for the period of 2018-2022. KASC has also held NRC titles during previous two three-year cycles (1994-1997, 2000-2003) and two four-year cycles (2006-2010 and 2010-2014). KASC also awards Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) fellowships, with the U.S. Department of Education most recently funding African Studies and language training in Amharic, Arabic, KiSwahili, Hausa, Somali and Wolof from 2014-18. It will continue to offer these languages in the current cycle.
