Become a Partner Organization

PiLA is continually looking to expand its fellowship opportunities in Latin America. PiLA aims to provide fellows with worthwhile field experiences and to provide our Latin American partner organizations with talented, motivated, affordable expertise.

By managing the entire process of recruiting and selecting candidates, PiLA seeks to reduce the costs associated with fellows and significantly increase the chances for successful fellowships. Our partner organizations continue to be extraordinarily pleased with the work of their PiLA fellows.

PiLA fellows are nominated via a comprehensive selection process to identify those students with the greatest chance at success. Working with the organizations, PiLA develops job descriptions and expectations in order to identify good prospects. Candidates must submit a written application, professional or academic references, and an academic transcript.

The process entails in-person interviews, and review by the selection committee. Fellowsare matched with partner organizations based on their capabilities and, where appropriate, their technical and language skills. PiLA then presents organizations with several candidates from which the organization may choose. Please not that being recommended to a host organization does not guarantee ultimate placement; that decision is made by the host organizations.

If you know of an organization in Latin America that would benefit from hosting a PiLA fellow, please contact the PiLA executive director:
