Carriebright Fellowship

The Carrie Gordon Tribute Fellowship (also known as the "Carriebright") provides up to $10,000 in funding to a Princeton in Asia fellow or a recent alumnus/a (within 5 years of his/her PiA year) to work in Asia beyond the end of his/her fellowship. The funding must be used to support a public service project of his/her choice that best embodies Carrie’s spirit, enthusiasm and commitment to public service. The projects may be personal (a Vietnamese-American fellow who would like to build a library in her family's home village) or wider-ranging (a fellow in China who needs support for a project to bring eyeglasses to all the students in the area of Hunan in which he taught). Criteria for selection will include the project's impact, feasibility and sustainability, as well as the qualifications of the applicant.

How to Apply

The 2017-2018 application will be due on Friday, April 28, 2017. Please contact Emily Eckardt at piapost@princeton.edu if you have any questions, would like to learn more about the Fellowship, or are planning on applying.
