About the Princeton Scholarship Program in Africa
The Princeton Africa Scholarship Program was started in 1999 by a group of Princeton alumni, faculty, and staff. They opened Princeton in Africa as an affiliate of Princeton University, inspired by the university’s informal motto, “Princeton serving the nation and serving all nations.”
The PiAf program places Fellows in organizations that will ensure their personal and professional growth. It is an opportunity for Fellows to join a growing community of PiAf alumni.
