Announcing the 2nd Annual All-Princeton Resource Fair for Summer Internships & Funding
One of the many things that makes Princeton such an amazing place to learn is the wide range of extracurricular and co-curricular programs across campus. In fact, did you know that there are more than 500 unique internship opportunities for students offered through Princeton-specific programs and departments alone? At the 2nd Annual All-Princeton Resource Fair for Summer Internships & Funding, to be held on December 6 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Frist Campus Center, students can discover multiple campus resources and summer internship programs available for undergraduate students across all concentrations and career interests.
“Attending one event that brings together all areas of campus that have summer internship programs and/or funding resources makes it easy for students to navigate all of the opportunities available — it’s designed as a convenient, one-stop event,” says Andrea Rydel, assistant director of internships. “Another advantage of this fair is the information available about funding sources across campus and the new Student Activities Funding Engine (SAFE),” she added.
“More than 700 students attended the fair in 2012, in its inaugural year,” said Beverly Hamilton-Chandler, director of Career Services. “We received positive feedback from both students and campus partners that indicated they both found the event valuable in building awareness and making connections between students and programs,” she added.
There is no registration fee for this fair and it is open to all campus entities who offer summer internships, programs and funding.
A sample of participating programs and departments that will participate in this year's fair includes: Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, Center for Health and Wellbeing, Community-Based Learning Initiative (CBLI), Keller Center, Office of Sustainability, Pace Center for Civic Engagement including Princeton Internships in Civic Service (PICS)- Guggenheim- and ISIP, Princeton AlumniCorps, Princeton Entertainment Internship and Entry Program, Princeton Environmental Institute (PEI), Princeton in Asia (PiA), Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory, Princeton University Investment Company (PRINCO), Princeton University Preparatory Program (PUPP), Princeton’s International Internship Program (IIP), Princeton-Blairstown Center, Princeton-in-Washington, Student Activities Funding Engine (SAFE) and the Woodrow Wilson School.
Participating departments and centers will be able to showcase their programs and resources, and distribute information to students at a time of year when students are actively preparing for the internship application process. Interested campus entities may register for the fair until November 21 via Career Services’ TigerTracks system.
