The Pew Latin American Fellows Program provides support for recent Ph.D. graduates from all Latin American countries to conduct postdoctoral training in top biomedical laboratories in the United States.  The program aims to strengthen the scientific community in Latin America and to promote collaborative exchange between U.S. and Latin America scientists.   Each award provides a $30,000 annual salary stipend for two years of study in the United States. Awardees who return to Latin America and establish independent labs receive additional $70,000 grant to purchase equipment and supplies.

This year, Biomedical Programs Pew staff will host an informational webinar for interested potential applicants so that they may learn more about the program in advance of the 2019 application cycle, which will open in July 2019.

  • Overview of the Pew Charitable Trusts Mission and Current Work
  • Funding Opportunity Details
