PiA sponsors over 150 fellowships and internships in 21 countries and is the oldest and largest organization of its kind, unique in its scope, size, century-long expertise and emphasis on service. The essence of PiA is to provide transformative, service-oriented experiences for bright, talented graduates and to serve the needs of Asia as determined by our host institutions and Asian partners. PiA arranges fellowships and internships with Asian host organizations that contribute to important global issues at the local level: education, public health, environmental sustainability, access to information/media, economic development and social justice. Fellowships are the means of fostering person-to-person diplomacy, enhancing mutual understanding, contributing to communities with unmet needs and providing transformative experiences for fellows and host communities. Fellows receive a local stipend paid by the host organization.
NOTE: Applicants pay a $60 fee, and fellows must pay a $550 fee as well as transportation/travel costs (some financial aid is available).
PiA is open to anyone of any nationality who has earned a bachelor’s degree. Review program info for application and fellowship fee information.
