Summer funding applications for Remote Research Internships are closed

Tuesday, Apr 14, 2020

The Program for Community-Engaged Scholarship (ProCES) was accepting student proposals for a fully remote, 8 week, summer research internship done in collaboration with a non-profit community partner organization or governmental agency.  ProCES, part of the Office of the Dean of the College, facilitates community-engaged and service-oriented academic work by supporting courses, independent work, and internships. 

These positions will allow students to use their academic skills and experience to investigate a question and meet an information need identified by their host organization.  ProCES will provide a stipend of $3200 to successful applicants along with training, support, professional development, and opportunities to connect with other ProCES interns.  The preferred time-frame for the internship is June 8 through July 31, 2020.

Please note, the application on Handshake is closed as of 5/5/20 due to limited availability of funds and a large number of applications.  Funding decisions will be made by Monday, May 11, 2020.  Additional support for materials, travel, food, or lodging will not be provided. 

Applications were accepted through Handshake and should have included the documents listed below.

  1. Resume
  2. Transcript from Oracle including fall 2019 grades (unofficial is fine)
  3. Reference information—name and contact information for a recent employer or someone at Princeton who can speak to your academic work
