Novogratz Bridge Year Program

The Novogratz Bridge Year Program is currently in communication with our community partners around programming for 2022-23. Check back in March of 2022 for news and updates on program locations. 

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 global community-engaged learning 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 community partners through their volunteer work.

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