Princeton in Asia (PiA) is an independent, non-profit organization located at Princeton University. Founded by students in 1898, the program is driven to foster cross-cultural understanding between East and West by giving young people opportunities to live and work in Asia. As employees of a variety of Asian institutions, PiA fellows gain work and life experience while providing valuable services to their Asian hosts. It is PiA’s vision that through extended exposure to Asian workplaces and cultures, fellows will develop a life-long appreciation for this.
For the 2014-2015 academic year, PiA expects to offer approximately 145 full-year fellowships in the following countries: Cambodia, China/Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Kazakhstan, Laos, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, The Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Tajikistan, Thailand, Timor-Leste and Vietnam.
New positions in other countries are always in development and may also be available. PiA offers service-oriented posts in the fields of education, international development (NGOs), journalism and business, with a majority of fellows working as English teachers at universities and high schools.Applications for the 2014-2015 fellowship cycle are due on November 16th, 2013
