Posted by mrp6 on October 1, 2016 in Awards, International Scholarship

Princeton in Latin America (PiLA) is accepting online applications for the 2017-2018 fellowship year until November 7, 2016.

PiLA matches highly qualified recent graduates with partner nonprofits and NGOs throughout Latin America and the Caribbean for a year of full-time service. Fellowship positions and organizational missions are highly varied, and thus applications from all academic disciplines are welcome. In 2016-2017, 42 PiLA fellows are serving with 24 organizations in 13 countries around the region.

Important qualifications include academic excellence and polished English-writing skills; demonstrated commitment to community service at home, abroad or both; foreign-language fluency (Spanish, Portuguese and/or French); knowledge of or experience in the region, or both; leadership skills; interpersonal and intercultural sensitivity; the flexibility to live at a subsistence level and adapt successfully to shifting circumstances during the fellowship; and a commitment to PiLA’s mission that extends beyond the year of service.

Fellows receive a monthly stipend to cover subsistence costs, according to local standards.

A few examples of our fellowship opportunities:
• Teaching sustainability or technology at a middle school in Uruguay
• Monitoring and Evaluation for nonprofits in the DR and Guatemala
• Grant writing work in Guatemala
• External Relations Coordinator at a college in Bolivia
