Princeton in Asia Fellowships Information Session

October 9 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Interested in teaching on the coast of Thailand, studying environmental conservation in Sri Lanka, reporting for a leading newspaper in Hong Kong, or working on local economic development in Mongolia? Then step out of the country, out of your comfort zone, and out of the cubicle and apply to Princeton in Asia. Join PiA alumnae, Samantha Luu (PiA China ’14)  to learn about the PiA experience and more about the application and community.

Princeton in Asia (PiA) fosters 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. Founded in 1898, PiA is one of the oldest not-for-profit organizations of its kind, unique in its scope, size, century-long expertise and emphasis on service. For the 2019-2020 academic year, PiA expects to offer 145 yearlong fellowships in 22 Asian countries and regions in the fields of access to education, environmental sustainability, public health, economic development, and peace, justice, and access to information. We have an incredibly active group of fellows and alumni who, inspired by their yearlong PiA experience, maintain a lifetime commitment to Asia and PiA.

PiA is open to graduates of all colleges and universities and requires no prior Asian experience or language skills.

The application is due October 31st, and can be found here: http://piaweb.princeton.edu/apply-to-pia.

Please email piaapps@princeton.edu with any questions about PiA.
