Center for Southeast Asia Studies - Philippines Studies Fund

Support Philippines Studies at UC Berkeley!

UC Berkeley has a history of deep and enduring relations with the Philippines. In recent years, the rising number of Philippine-American students enrolled at UC Berkeley has sparked a renewed interest and energy in Philippine Studies. New courses have been developed in Philippine and Philippine-American Studies and Filipino language instruction has expanded to meet increased student interest. Teaching and research in the field also thrives on campus thanks to core faculty such as Prof. Catherine Ceniza Choy (Ethnic Studies), and Philippine literature specialist and Filipino language instructor Dr. Joi Barrios-LeBlanc (South & Southeast Asian Studies).

Support the Center for Southeast Asian Studies (CSEAS) to organize and promote events that highlight Philippine Studies on campus through lecture series and academic conferences, and programs that facilitate student research and field training in the Philippines.
