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.
The current application cycle is now closed as of October 1, 2013. After the application deadline is passed, submitted applications will be reviewed by the Regional Selection Committee. 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 then make the final selection of the 2014 Fellows by April 2014. Salary support from Pew for chosen fellows will begin August 2014.
