Interested in teaching on the coast of Thailand, studying environmental conservation in the foothills of the Himalayas, reporting for a leading newspaper in Myanmar, or working on local economic development in Mongolia? Then step out of the country, out of your comfort zone, and out of the cubicle and apply to Princeton in Asia.

Princeton in Asia (PiA) fosters 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 relationships and benefit local and global communities. Founded in 1898, PiA is one of the oldest not-for-profit organizations of its kind, unique in its scope, size, century-long expertise and emphasis on service. For the 2016-2017 academic year, PiA expects to offer 130 yearlong fellowships in 19 Asian countries in the fields of access to education, environmental sustainability, public health, economic development, social justice and access to information. We have an incredibly active group of fellows and alumni who, inspired by their yearlong PiA experience, maintain a lifetime commitment to Asia and PiA.

PiA is open to graduates of all colleges and universities and requires no prior Asian experience or language skills.

The application is due November 13th, and can be found here: http://piaweb.princeton.edu/apply-to-pia.
