Pew Fellows will be selected on the basis of their promise as outstanding investigators and their commitment to advance biomedical research in their developing careers as part of the Latin American scientific research community. Applicants will be chosen based also on the merit of their research proposal, their record of training and how well their interests align with the proposed mentor and laboratory in the United States.
The 2013 application is now closed. Incoming applications will be reviewed first by the regional nominating committee for the country of the applicant. Click here (PDF) for a list of the regional committees. Each committee will select and invite finalists in their region for an in-person interview with the members. Each committee will nominate six final candidates from their region to Pew for further consideration. Those applications, as well as all others from other countries which will be initially reviewed by the program office, will next be thoroughly reviewed by the National Advisory Committee in the U.S. They will make the final selection of 2013 Pew Fellows by April 2013.
