PiLA Fellows are supported by their host organizations at a subsistence level. Their basic housing, utilities, food, personal essentials, work-related transport, and certain visa-related costs are covered through monthly stipend payments, in-kind, or by a combination of these. In most cases, fellows must cover their own international airfare and mandatory health and emergency insurance costs. Fellows should expect to live modestly in local terms. PiLA Fellowships are not money-making posts, but they afford a unique opportunity to gain valuable experience and launch an international public-sector career, if that is desired.
