What's Next?

  • Enter the Office of International Programs Photo Contest. The annual International Eye Photo Contest is a great opportunity for Princeton students to share their experiences abroad with fellow returnees and the greater campus community. All Princeton undergraduates who have studied, worked, volunteered, or conducted research abroad in the past year are eligible to submit up to four photos.  
  • Become a Global Ambassador. Study Abroad Global Ambassadors are Princeton students who have already completed a successful semester or year overseas and are available to share their experiences with students who are considering study abroad. Ambassadors participate in events across campus sponsored by our office, and work closely with OIP staff to enhance the visibility and popularity of study abroad.
  • Go on another study abroad program. The Office of International Programs offers a number of opportunities abroad. Students can study abroad for more than a semester, provided they discussed their plans with their departments (or prospective departments) and college deans. However, if they are earning non-Princeton credits for summer study abroad or during a leave of absence abroad, they must be aware of Princeton’s credit limits. To discuss options for additional study abroad or other international opportunities, do not hesitate to meet with a study abroad adviser.
  • Apply to the International Internship Program (IIP). IIP has arranged a wide range of summer internships specifically for Princeton students all over the world. To apply for an IIP, you must be a full-time Princeton first-year, sophomore, or junior during the summer of your internship. 
  • Apply for undergraduate or post-graduate fellowships. Fellowship Advising, housed within the Office of International Programs, assists undergraduates and recent alumni to navigate the complex process of identifying and applying for scholarships, fellowships, and grants that fit their academic interests and goals. Many competitive fellowship programs favor students who have already developed a global perspective through travel and study. Since some of these opportunities are very competitive and require extensive preparation, you should meet with a fellowship adviser as early as possible.
