Pew Fellows Award to Pursue Postdoctoral Training in the U.S.

The Pew Latin American Fellows Program in the Biomedical Sciences provides support for young scientists from Latin America to receive postdoctoral training in leading laboratories in the United States. The program gives these individuals an opportunity to further their scientific knowledge, promote exchange and collaboration between investigators in the United States and Latin America, and advance biomedical research in Latin America.

Details of the Award

• Ten Pew Latin American Fellows will be selected in 2014.
• A grant of $60,000 will be provided by The Pew Charitable Trusts to the sponsoring U.S. institution to supplement the fellow’s postdoctoral salary.
 After completion of the fellowship, and upon confirmation of the fellow’s plans to return to Latin America, Pew will issue an additional payment of $35,000 to the sponsoring institution for the purchase of supplies and equipment to help establish the fellow’s independent laboratory in Latin America.


• Applicants must have been awarded a Ph.D. or M.D. degree by February 1, 2014, but no earlier than July 1, 2009.

• Applicants with more than 18 months of postdoctoral training in the United States before July 1, 2014, are not eligible.
• Applicants are required to submit a written statement of intent to return to Latin America.
