I spent a summer interning with an NGO in Latin America and would like to return there for a year. Is it possible to be placed with an organization that is not on PiLA’s current list of partners?

PiLA is always interested in the possibility of new partnerships, and PiLA fellows are integral to identifying such possibilities. However, given the extensive vetting process that PiLA conducts to evaluate new potential partners (and to ensure the quality of the fellowship experience), it can take up to a year for a new partnership to be established. Therefore, it is not possible to apply in a given cycle and expect there to be a placement with an organization that is not already a PiLA partner.
