The Center for Middle Eastern Studies at Harvard is offering a Winter Term Study Excursion in Tunisa for January 2017 for graduate students at any Harvard School. The program’s three-week itinerary focuses on the language, history, and literature of Tunisia. This trip is ideal for students with history or literature interests. Preference will be given to graduate students whose interests concentrate in MENA studies.

The application will ask for your Harvard transcript, resume, one letter of recommendation from a Harvard professor, and a statement of purpose. Your statement of purpose should address your interest and academic background in Middle Eastern studies and should be between 300-500 words.
