We encourage applicants to plan early for the expenses associated with a PiLA Fellowship, reaching out to their own universities and communities to learn about funding opportunities should they be placed with a PiLA partner. PiLA has limited funds to subsidize the cost of fees for fellows with demonstrated financial need.
