Puerto Rico is witnessing a historic moment, as young people continue to call out their government’s abandonment of the country’s most vulnerable communities. Puerto Rico continues to struggle with the complexities of colonialism and the socioeconomic consequences of a U.S. imposed Fiscal Oversight Board. Young people continue to be on the frontlines working to protect essential services—including the University of Puerto Rico—as part of the fiscal plans that will define Puerto Rico’s future. With the motive to continue supporting social and political movements led by young people, the Open Society Foundations is pleased to announce the third Puerto Rico Youth Fellowship.
The duration of the fellowship is 18 continuous months starting in January 2023 (January 2023–June 2024). Recipients of the fellowship will receive $45,000, structured to cover project related costs as well as a living stipend.
