- Princeton in Asia (PiA) sends young leaders on service fellowships in the fields of education, development, environmental advocacy, journalism and business. Founded in 1898, we are the oldest and largest not-for-profit organization of our kind. Through PiA fellowships, we aim to facilitate cross-cultural understanding in a region of accelerating global importance. PiA has partners in over 20 countries, with locations ranging from developed, leading Asian economies such as Singapore, to emerging frontiers such as Tajikistan. We have an incredibly active group of fellows and alumni who, inspired by this yearlong PiA experience, maintain a lifetime commitment to PiA and Asia.
We would love to see more applications from students at Johns Hopkins, especially given the wonderful fellows we've had on PiA over the years. Our interim communications director, Katherine Visconti, is a Johns Hopkins graduate. She also created a beautiful film about PiA this year! We are very proud of her.
The application is due November 16, and can be found here: http://piaweb.princeton.edu/apply-to-pia
