About Fellowship Organizations

Princeton in Africa began by sending 2 Fellows over to Rwanda to work with the International Rescue Commission (IRC) in 1999. Now, 20 years later, PiAf continues to send Fellows to the IRC, but has grown to partner with over 100 different organizations in 36 African countries. PiAf seeks relationships  with a diverse range of organizations, including, local and grassroots organizations, international NGOs, and private sector companies. We work hard to maintain opportunities across a number of sectors including conservation, education, finance, public health , advocacy and humanitarian aid.
