Princeton in Africa

 

Description

Princeton in Africa matches talented and passionate college graduates with organizations working across Africa for yearlong service placements. Our program is open to graduating seniors 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. We work closely with our fellowship organizations to select highly qualified and motivated graduating seniors and young alumni for our yearlong fellowships. Princeton in Africa creates an excellent opportunity for both fellowship organizations and Fellows, where organizations enjoy access to an exceptionally motivated and talented group of young people, and Fellows gain a unique experience in Africa that translates into a lifelong commitment to African affairs and service. During their year of service, our Fellows create connections that last their lifetime. Some stay and continue to work in Africa; others leverage their experience to launch careers in international development. No matter where they go, our Fellows’ experiences with Princeton in Africa transform their lives and perspectives about the world and their role within it. Princeton in Africa is committed to offering opportunities on a need-blind basis. We are an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We are affiliated with Princeton University, and grateful for donated office space and other support, but we are not funded directly by the University. We rely on the continued generosity of corporations, foundations, and individuals like you to make these fellowships possible. By supporting Princeton in Africa, you are not just impacting the life of one individual, but lives within our own communities and across the continent of Africa.
