Graduate Fellows


PLAS awards 2 to 4 dissertation completion writing grants annually, for either a semester or the full academic year, to advanced graduate students who work in Latin American studies and who have reached Dissertation Completion Enrollment (DCE) status at Princeton University.

These are the two options:

  • Full-year grant with a stipend plus full DCE costs;
  • Half-year grant with a stipend plus one-half DCE costs*.

Full-year grants are awarded for the academic year (August to May) and the stipend rate is equal to 10-months of the University Fellowship. Half-year grants are awarded for 5-months (August to December for the fall term or January to May for the spring term) and the stipend rate is equal to 5 months of the University Fellowship.

All recipients must submit a report on work accomplished by November 1 following the academic year of the grant award. 
* 2020-2021 DCE or in Absentia Enrollment is $6,480/academic year (includes tuition and student health plan fee).
