Bogle Fellowship Application Process

The Bogle Fellowship is designed to promote intellectual curiosity in students. Students are encouraged to think about issues or topics that they’ve learned about or experienced and consider how an immersive service experience might enable them to delve more deeply into the topic. 

Applicants may see the fellowship as an opportunity to return to their home community or revisit a familiar experience with the new lens of a Princetonian; others may opt to use the opportunity to remain in Princeton or explore a new environment. 

Application Requirements

  • Only first-year Princeton students are eligible to apply.
