A letter from an alumnus about Princeton in Latin America Program

January 12, 2003

I am writing to announce the formation of Princeton in Latin America (PiLA) by a group of students, faculty, and alumni. A postgraduate fellowship organization, modeled after the highly successful Princeton in Asia program and its younger sibling Princeton in Africa, Princeton in Latin America seeks to enhance the lives of young Princeton graduates by placing them in yearlong fellowships with public service, humanitarian, and governmental organizations in Latin America. Many faculty have enthusiastically embraced the new organization and its board includes Professors Jeremy Adelman, Miguel Centeno, Paul Sigmund, and Deborah Yashar.

Emphasizing the value of firsthand work experience in shaping attitudes and mobilizing recent Princeton graduates on behalf of social change, PiLA hopes to fill an increasing demand among Princeton graduates for opportunities to become involved with development and service work in Latin America. Dedicated to extending the university’s motto of Princeton in the nation’s service and in the service of all nations” to our Latin American neighbors, PiLA expects to place three to five yearlong fellows starting in fall 2003.

To learn more about PiLA, propose a fellowship placement, or offer ideas and suggestions, check out our website at www.princeton.edu/pila or contact us at pila@princeton.edu.
