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. For the 2013-2014 academic year, PiA expects to offer approximately 145 full-year fellowships in the following countries: Burma, Cambodia, China/Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Kazakhstan, Laos, Malaysia, Mongolia, Nepal, The Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Tajikistan, Thailand, Timor-Leste and Vietnam. 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.
