Princeton Internships in Civic Service (PICS)

PICS has many opportunities still available for applications and more may be added after the February 24 deadline. Please check the current list of opportunities via GPS and confirm your choices before submitting your application. PICS offers 8-10 week summer internship opportunities in a variety of organizations and agencies ranging from arts and culture, education, energy and the environment, human rights, and government and public policy. Paired with an alumni mentor, PICS students explore opportunities for learning more about topics they are passionate about and explore career paths related to service and civic engagement. 

Princeton RISE

Princeton RISE (Recognizing Inequities and Standing for Equality) fellows foster enduring and sustained commitment to civic engagement and support 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, and the arts. Students and community partners apply separately to the program and will be matched according to skills, interest, and topics. RISE interns meet with their cohort for weekly discussions throughout the summer.

John C. Bogle ’51 Fellows in Civic Service

Bogle Fellows identify their own community partners, with guidance from Pace Center 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.

The Nancy Weiss Malkiel Fellowship

This fellowship, whose recipients engage with the John C. Bogle ’51 Fellows in Civic Service as part of an engaged learning community, supports first generation college students and other students at Princeton University who are interested in working alongside community partners to expand educational access.
