Service at Princeton University is about responding to the needs of the world.
Internships and Fellowships
Guggenheim Internships in Criminal Justice offer students from Princeton University, Barnard College, and Columbia University the opportunity to intern with nonprofits in New York City to learn about legal issues in criminal justice. For summer 2020, internships have been adjusted to address health guidelines and organization needs associated with COVID-19.
John C. Bogle ’51 Fellows in Civic Service are first-year students who design and engage in service-related summer internships and projects, and connect those experiences to their academic work and career. For summer 2020, all Bogle Fellows will work remotely.
Through Princeton Internships in Civic Service (PICS), undergraduate students explore careers in public service and nonprofits via summer internships, and receive support from alumni mentors. For Summer 2020, all international PICS internships have been cancelled. Where possible, PICS is working with partner organizations to provide remote internship opportunities.
