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 (PiA).

Learn more about PiA from Roya Montazedi, a former PiA fellow in Japan. This is a wonderful opportunity to hear firsthand from a PiA alumna and ask her any questions you may have.

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 2017-2018 academic year, PiA expects to offer 130 yearlong fellowships in 21 Asian countries in the fields of access to education, environmental sustainability, public health, economic development, social justice and access to information. The program has an 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 11th, and can be found here:
Please email with any questions about PiA or the application.  

Roya Motazedi graduated from UMD in 2012 with majors in Japanese and in International Relations & East Asia (through the Individual Studies Program). After graduating as a proud Terp, Roya did a two- year fellowship in Japan with the Princeton in Asia (PiA) fellowship program.  As a PiA fellow, Roya lived in a small, rural town in Japan called Yakage where she spent two years teaching English at eight different kindergarten and nursery schools. Additionally, as a PiA fellow, Roya was employed at the Yakage Town Hall where she helped organize English events for the town, contributed to re-creating the town's bilingual teaching plan, and interacted with her Japanese co-workers on a daily basis (including the Mayor!). Roya concluded her PiA fellowship in 2014 and is currently in her final year of law school at the George Washington University Law School.
