Program Description:

PiLA logoPrinceton in Latin America (PiLA) was established by an enthusiastic group of Princeton students, alumni, staff, and faculty as an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to actualizing in the Americas the University's motto, "Princeton in the nation's service and the service of humanity." Since 2003–2004, some 350 fellows have served with PiLA's partners around Latin America and the Caribbean. PiLA matches partner NGO and multilateral organizations engaged in socially responsible development projects in Latin America and the Caribbean with highly qualified and motivated recent graduates of US colleges and universities who are interested in year-long service fellowship opportunities throughout the region.

Applicants should have strong foreign-language (Spanish, Portuguese) competency; an academic grounding in the region's culture, history, socioeconomics and politics; and a sustained record of volunteerism and community service, whether domestic (e.g., work with Latin American immigrant communities in the United States), in the region, or both.

For questions about foreign-language recommendations (e.g., if you are a native speaker, if you speak both Spanish and Portuguese, or if you speak both Spanish and Haitian Creole), send an email to applications@pila-princeton.org.
