for Students

Incorporate community priorities and perspectives into your coursework, internships, and independent research

From your first semester at Princeton through your senior thesis, ProCES can help you to engage in academic work that benefits from the programming, expertise, and knowledge of community organizations. 

  • Support and learn with community partners through your academic coursework by taking a ProCES course.
  • Participate in community-based research and learn from community partners directly through a ProCES internship.
  • Pursue  your independent  community-based research project with ProCES funding for community-engaged independent work.

In the words of a student enrolled in a ProCES-affiliated social sciences course:

"I opted into the ProCES component of this course, and I loved it. It was my favorite part of this course and one of my favorite things that I did all semester. In these extra meetings, I interacted more personally with the course instructors and dove more deeply into the text from our lectures...which enhanced my experience in the course overall. I loved working with my peers on our lesson and I am so grateful for the opportunity to have engaged with the community beyond Princeton."
