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.

In 2023, Princeton RISE matched the following students and partner organizations.
