DEADLINE February 15, 2024
The Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS) announces the 2024-25 competition for Latin American Social and Public Policy Fellowships (LASPPFs). These fellowships are designed to assist students interested in various dimensions of social and public policy in Latin America to pursue graduate studies in a department or professional school at the University of Pittsburgh.
The range of topics and subjects that can be included as aspects of social and public policy include specific areas of specialization such as environmental management, democratization, economic restructuring, governmental decentralization, educational or judicial reform, public health and/or nutrition policy, social security systems, social welfare reform, ethnice and/or racial justice, and technology and social change among others.
