For Applicants

Princeton in Asia (PiA) is an independent, non-profit organization affiliated with and located on campus at Princeton University. Founded by students in 1898, 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 friendships and benefit local and global communities. It is PiA’s vision that through extended exposure to Asian workplaces and cultures, Fellows will develop a life-long appreciation for and engagement in this part of the world, as well as a commitment to contributing to the communities of which they find themselves a part after PiA. We like to think of PiA as “a change in perspective, a job that matters, a community for life.”

For the 2017-2018 academic year, PiA expects to offer approximately 130 full-year fellowships in the following locations: Cambodia, China, East Timor, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Macau, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, The Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.

Princeton in Asia Fellows teach in kindergartens, secondary schools, polytechnics and universities; they work with international and local nonprofits as well as some of Asia’s most innovative businesses and social enterprises; they write for newspapers and create content for news platforms with an international reach. Due to the size and diversity of the positions available, we encourage applicants of all disciplines and backgrounds to apply.
