Asia Center Graduate Summer Language Grant
These grants are for students enrolled in a master’s or doctoral program at Harvard, in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences or any of its professional schools, for study during the summer of an East Asian language (including the Altaic languages), or of one of the languages of South or Southeast Asia.
Due to current travel restrictions, study is limited to accredited virtual programs. In the case that such a program does note exist, other options including individual tutoring may be consisdered.
Priority will be given to advanced study in a primary language, to the study of a secondary language that is necessary for the completion of the degree, or to the study of a secondary language that is necessary for advanced research.
Applicants are encouraged to seek support from other sources, which may be combined with Asia Center funds.
Students applying to a Harvard Summer School language program should first explore submitting an application for a tuition waiver from GSAS. Students should consult their academic departments for application procedures and deadlines.
