Princeton Internships in Civic Service (PICS)

PICS offers 8-10 week paid summer internships at nonprofit organizations across the United States, along with a few international locations. Paired with an alumni mentor, PICS students explore opportunities in research, data analytics, environmental sustainability, energy policy, communications/marketing, community outreach, arts and culture, legal services, youth development, and global health.

Several PICS internships fulfill requirements of certificate programs. Many PICS interns have found their internships have influenced their career goals and learning paths. After graduating, former interns have worked for their nonprofits, started their own nonprofits, become alumni partners, and connected PICS with new internship opportunities.

Princeton RISE (Recognizing Inequities & Standing for Equality)

The Princeton RISE (Recognizing Inequities and Standing for Equality) Fellowship Program helps connect Princeton undergraduates with meaningful internships focused on combating systemic racism across all sectors of society. Princeton RISE is intended to foster students' enduring and sustained commitment to civic engagement and was established in 2020 in response to the Black, indigenous, LatinX, and Asian lives lost to the pandemic, police violence, and citizen vigilantism.

RISE fellows engage with racial equity projects spanning a wide range of topics, including health, advocacy, reproductive rights, criminal justice, immigration, LGBTQIA+ justice, food security, housing security, environmental justice, religious and ethnic minority rights, voting rights, public policy, disability justice, and the arts. RISE interns meet with their cohort for weekly discussions throughout the summer.

John C. Bogle ‘51 Fellows in Civic Service

The John C. Bogle ‘51 Fellows in Civic Service program (Bogle Fellowship) offers support and funding for students who -- like Jack Bogle, the program’s namesake -- have a specific passion they would like to pursue. Bogle Fellows identify their own community partners, with guidance from Pace staff as needed, and work with community partners to support their service and civic engagement mission.

Fellows may choose to pursue a traditional internship experience at a partner organization, or they may develop and implement a project or program alongside a partner organization which meets an existing need within that community.

    Nancy Weiss Malkiel Fellowship

    The Nancy Weiss Malkiel Fellowship supports first-generation and low-income college students and other students at Princeton University who are interested in working alongside community partners to expand educational access. The program, whose recipients engage with the John C. Bogle ’51 Fellows in Civic Service as part of an engaged learning community, recognizes the role of higher education in the social mobility of first-generation students and aims to increase the number of first-generation college students and support them in developing proposals to learn about improving access to higher education.

    The Pace Center awards two Nancy Weiss Malkiel Fellowships each year with ideally one fellow focusing on direct support of first-generation college students and one fellow focusing on research related to the social mobility of first-generation college students.

    Projects for Peace

    The Projects for Peace initiative provides Princeton undergraduates with a $10,000 award to implement an innovative service project anywhere in the world - or right in their own backyard!

    Projects for Peace is an initiative inspired by the late Kathryn W. Davis, an accomplished internationalist, and philanthropist. Upon the occasion of her 100th birthday in February of 2007, Mrs. Davis, mother of Shelby M.C. Davis who funds the Davis UWC Scholars Program, chose to celebrate by committing $1 million for one hundred Projects for Peace.
