Novogratz Bridge Year Program

The Novogratz Bridge Year Program allows incoming students to begin their Princeton experience engaged in nine months of tuition-free, University-sponsored service at one of five international locations. Bridge Year participants study the local language, live with carefully selected homestay families, and take part in a variety of cultural enrichment activities, while learning from host communities through their volunteer work.

Application to the Novogratz Bridge Year Program is open to all incoming first-year Princeton undergraduate students.
