Apply for a GradFUTURES Fellowship

GradFUTURES Fellowships are bespoke opportunities for Princeton graduate students with organizations that have partnered with the Graduate School to design meaningful professional development experiences. GradFUTURES Fellowships/Internships provide graduate students with the opportunity to build professional skills and competencies, apply discipline-specific knowledge and gain interdisciplinary project team experience, and expand their professional network. Students receive one-on-one mentoring and coaching as well as exposure to organizational dynamics, leadership strategies, and trends in the field. Host organizations work closely with the Graduate School to determine the learning outcomes and professional development goals for these immersive experiences.

The expectation is that the fellow will participate in professional development programming offered in conjunction with the Fellowship program, attend periodic check-ins with the GradFUTURES team, and share learnings and feedback. 

All GradFUTURES Fellowships must abide by Princeton Graduate School policies, including the Employment Policy. GradFUTURES Fellows also agree to adhere to University conduct standards.  If you have questions about eligibility, you are encouraged to email gradfutures@princeton.edu.
