Graduate Fellows

PLAS awards two to four dissertation completion writing grants annually for either a semester or the full academic year to the most promising advanced graduate students from all Princeton doctoral programs, whose research work focuses on Latin America and who have reached Dissertation Completion Enrollment (DCE) status, with priority given to 6th year students. The award includes a stipend and covers DCE/In-Absentia tuition and student health plan fees. The PLAS Graduate Fellowship award obligates recipients to be active in the program by attending events, presenting their work, and coordinating the Graduate Fellows Works-in-Progress Series, an interdisciplinary series that provides a forum for graduate students to discuss their dissertation work on Latin America with other students and faculty from across campus. The call for applications opens in the Global Programs System (GPS) in January and expires in mid-March.
