Applicants must have been awarded a Ph.D. and or M.D. degree by February 2014 but not for more than five years prior to July 1, 2014. Preference will be given to applicants who received their undergraduate and graduate degrees from institutions in Latin America. Applicants may have obtained their undergraduate or graduate degrees from a school outside of Latin America but preferably not in the United States. Applicants may not have had previous postdoctoral training in the United States in excess of 18 months prior to July 1, 2014. To apply, candidates are not required to have a commitment of a research position and laboratory space after the fellowship. However, in order to obtain the $35,000 portion of the award at the end of the fellowship period for the purchase of supplies and equipment to establish a laboratory in Latin America, Pew Fellows must obtain a written commitment of a position and laboratory space at least 4 months before the end date of the Pew grant.
It is the policy of the Pew Program that grantees may not hold another similar fellowship award simultaneously during the Pew Fellowship, such as the Human Frontier Science Program award. On the application, candidates must indicate if they are also applying for such awards. In the event that an applicant receives such an award, they must notify the Pew program office and will need to relinquish the Pew Fellowship if they choose to accept the other award. Please contact Anita Pepper, Program Director, at email@example.com if you have any questions regarding this policy.
The 2013 application is now closed. In October, applications will be reviewed by the Regional Nominating Committee. A complete list of the Regional Nominating Committee members is available here (PDF). The regional committees will invite finalists in their region to interview in person with the committee members. Each committee will nominate six candidates to Pew. The nominated candidates will be further reviewed by the National Advisory Committee in the United States who will make the final selection of the 2013 fellowship awardees by April 2013. Chosen Fellows should plan to begin the fellowship by August 2013.
