Princeton in Africa matches talented and passionate college students with organizations working across Africa for year-long service placements. Our program is open to students and young alumni from any college or university accredited in the U.S. Our Fellows have helped improve education and public health, source fresh water and alternative energy, increase family incomes, and so much more.
Note: PiAf is committed to ensuring that all applicants are able to participate in the fellowship program without regard to need. Students with demonstrated financial need should speak directly with PiAf. We will work with applicants to ensure that financial considerations do not prevent any applicant selected for a fellowship from participating.
