The 2021 grant application process will open on June 8, 2020. In order to request application portal access, please email [email protected].

Potential candidates for the Pew Latin American Fellows Program must locate a sponsor lab in the United States prior to beginning their application. We strongly advise beginning this process early (if not already in a lab), as finding a sponsor may require a significant time commitment and take several months. Although Pew does not provide a set list of sponsors, the following resources are available:
Potential applicants may also request assistance from the program office or the regional committees prior to June 8, 2020. The program office will assist with the identification of possible laboratories with matching research interests. For assistance, please email the program office at [email protected]. This assistance guarantees neither a position in that laboratory nor a Pew fellowship.
Potential candidates must send an email to the program office at [email protected] to request login information for the application portal, which will open on June 8, 2020.

Advice and assistance is also available from the regional committee members; download their names and contact information in English, Spanish, or Portuguese.
