Info Session: Princeton in Asia

October 16, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

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 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.

Princeton in Asia Fellows teach in kindergartens, secondary schools, polytechnics and universities; they help run 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.
