In order to assess the star forming history of the nearby Cepheus flare giant molecular cloud complex we propose to use the FAST spectrograph to obtain low resolution spectra of its candidate pre-main sequence stars. The proposed observations will allow us to identify the PMS stars of the region and derive their masses and ages. The results will provide a data set for studying the star forming history and large-scale evolutionary processes of the molecular clouds.
