PiLA Welcomes its New 2024/25 Cohort

(April 15, 2024) Princeton in Latin America is pleased to announce our 2024/25 cohort of fellows, the first since operations were suspended during the Covid pandemic.  This year’s cohort will include 14 fellows who will be working with 6 host organizations in Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, and Mexico.

PiLA received 120 applications from graduates of over 65 colleges and universities as part of the program’s relaunch.  All applications were reviewed by members of PiLA’s board as well as our operations team in Princeton.  Finalists were interviewed by board members and PiLA staff, with 45 individuals ultimately referred for final interviews and selection by host organizations.

This year’s cohort includes graduates from 13 schools who will bring a range of skills – including teaching and youth development, social media and communications, research and analytics, and environmental conservation – to help our non-profit and social sector partners achieve their goals and improve the communities in which they operate.  Depending on their placements, PiLA fellows will spend from 6 to 12 months in the field, providing important skills but also expanding their horizons to prepare them to be global leaders.
