Princeton in Latin America (PiLA) partners with NGOs and multilateral organizations and places highly qualified recent college graduates in year-long service fellowships with nonprofit, public service, humanitarian, and government organizations in Latin American and Caribbean. Since 2003, PiLA has placed 360 fellows with partners in 20 countries throughout the region.

Fellowship experiences vary greatly depending on placement and organization. Some Fellows work closely with a supervisor or colleague(s); others work more independently. Some Fellows work in offices that are filled with local staff; others work with a high number of expatriates. Some Fellows live in urban areas like Mexico City or Lima; and others are based in semi-urban and rural areas with limited resources.

All fellowships are 12 months long, and all Fellows experience support from Princeton in Latin America staff, alumni, and other Fellows. You will be matched with buddies and mentors during the fellowship and beyond.

PiLA Fellows come from many fields of study such as STEM, social sciences and humanities, arts, pre-med, law, public policy, education, international relations, communications, and more. PiLA Fellows are from diverse backgrounds including many of Latin American heritage as well as first-generation college students. Placements are finalized by March and start dates range from June to August.

PiLA is conducting a standard fall application schedule for the 2021-22 program, but just as the 2020-21 PiLA Fellows are starting their placements remotely, it is possible that 2021-22 placements will be partly remote. The specifics of the 2021-22 fellowship program will depend on global and regional travel, health, and security conditions next year.
