Sponsored by Princeton in Asia
Founded in 1898, Princeton in Asia (PiA) has been building bridges between the U.S. and Asia for over a century. The program has long been driven by a mission to foster mutual appreciation and cultural understanding by connecting service-minded graduates and partner organizations in Asia through immersive work experiences that transform perspectives, cultivate long-lasting relationships, and benefit local and global communities. PiA offers year-long fellowships in 20 countries and regions of Asia in the fields of education, public health, economic development, environmental sustainability, and peace, justice, and access to information. This year, PiA will offer approximately 145 fellowships. PiA Fellows teach English to university students in Kazakhstan, report for a daily newspaper in Vietnam, support the communications staff of a wildlife conservation NGO in Myanmar, work for a Buddhist art research academy in China, and more. Though each PiA fellowship is unique, all Fellows contribute to PiA’s 121-year old mission of promoting goodwill and understanding and facilitating cultural exchange between the US and Asia.
PiA is open to graduates of all colleges and universities and does not require any previous Asia experience or language skills. Head on over to our website to begin your application today!
