Social & Public Policy Fellowships

Social & Public Policy Fellowships

The Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS) announces the 2019-20 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 of the University of Pittsburgh.
 
Two categories of students are considered under the fellowship competition: (1) newly entering students and (2) students at the dissertation-writing stage. Priority for the fellowships is given to newly entering students. Fellowships for students at the dissertation-writing stage will be considered only if funds remain after the category 1 competition is complete.
 
Candidates for the fellowships in both categories must be nominated by the department or school in which they are enrolled. Please check with your department/school on their deadlines to be nominated for the fellowship.
