Novogratz Bridge Year Program

The Novogratz Bridge Year is a nine-month, tuition-free program that allows newly admitted undergraduates to begin their Princeton experience with a year of community-engaged learning at one of six 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 with and from community partners through their community engagement.

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