Princeton in Asia: Info Session

Princeton in Asia representative and alum, Mai Yer Xiong (Laos, '15), will be on hand to discuss the program and answer your questions about PiA!

Princeton in Asia (PiA) is an independent, non-profit organization located at Princeton University.  Founded by students in 1898, the program has long been driven by a mission to foster cross-cultural understanding between Asians and Americans by giving young people opportunities to live and work in Asia.  As employees of a variety of Asian institutions, PiA fellows gain work 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 that region of the world.

For the 2019-2020 academic year, PiA expects to offer approximately 140 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, journalism, international development (NGOs), and business, with a majority of fellows working as English teachers at universities and high schools.

Applications for 2019-20 fellowships are due November 2, 2018. For more information PiA, profiles of available posts, and instructions to apply, come to this information session or visit their website.
