We are thrilled to share with the PiLA Family that all our new PiLA Fellows have started their placements!
It’s been a whirlwind year for PiLA and for our valued partner organizations, but also for our program finalists for the 2020-21 fellowship year.
Though our spring placement process was disrupted and then delayed, and many of our partners had to cancel their planned PiLA positions, some partners were able to creatively adapt their roles for incoming PiLA Fellows and offer remote placements. In an all-virtual orientation in August, though our new Fellows did not get to explore Princeton’s majestic campus or sample some of PiLA staff’s favorite local restaurants (Jammin’ Crepes, anyone?), both Board and Alumni volunteers joined in from many cities to give the new Fellows a warm welcome.
Our group of 10 new PiLA Fellows are based in the U.S. and working remotely for now, but still exemplifying the PiLA mission by supporting our partners in a variety of fields including business development, renewable energy, and advocacy for indigenous women’s rights. This small but impressive cohort is made up of graduates of universities all over the U.S.; from Princeton to the University of Southern California and many in between, and their undergraduate degrees range from physics to sociology to global health and health policy. We are grateful to all of them for moving ahead on this 2020 adventure with us!
