Fellowship AFLI - Akan/Twi, Wolof, and Zulu

Please note that the content below applies to the 2019 application year. Some program information may change ahead of the next application deadlines in January/February 2020.

African Flagship Languages Initiative (AFLI) applicants for Akan/Twi, Wolof, and Zulu must participate in the official summer AFLI program at the University of Florida. This full-time program is appropriate for those with no previous experience in the language, as well as those at a novice or intermediate level.

Because there are no official AFLI overseas programs for these languages, applicants must design their own overseas program starting no later than September 15.
