A Note about Funding and Graduate Student Employment

All graduate students must adhere to the Graduate Student Employment policy when participating in an opportunity that is compensated or funded by an external entity. This includes participating in internships and receiving compensation from private sector organizations, paid positions at national government labs or research institutes, and research assistantships funded by institutions outside of Princeton. Graduate students must obtain approval from their faculty adviser prior to acceptance of a position and must also complete an External Opportunity Application Form (link found on this site). Faculty advisers may submit a note of support using this form. Additionally, all international graduate students must review and comply with guidelines on the Davis International Center’s Employment Page so as not to risk violating their visa immigration status.
