SENIORS: Timelines for Applying to Princeton in…Africa, Asia & Latin America

What is ‘Princeton in…Africa, Asia & Latin America’?

Since 1898, the independent, non-profit organization located at Princeton University has long been driven by a mission to foster mutual appreciation and cultural understanding by connecting service-minded graduates and partner organizations in Africa, Asia and Latin America through immersive work experiences that transform perspectives, cultivate long-lasting relationships and benefit local and global communities. It is their vision that through extended exposure to global workplaces and cultures, Fellows will develop a life-long appreciation for and engagement in parts of the world, as well as a commitment to contributing to the communities they find themselves a part of after their Fellowships end.
If you are a Senior and have had any thoughts of working abroad for a year, you might very well be a good match for these programs. Each region of the world has a different management in terms of applying, so below is just a tickler to get this on a your mind and your radar if you are looking for a transformative experience working with a nonprofit that you are partnered with for one year of service.
