Bridge Year Program

Are you interested in international experiences and public service? Then we invite you to spend a tuition-free year abroad, even before you begin your first year at Princeton.

Designed especially for incoming freshmen, Princeton’s new Bridge Year Program allows you to defer your enrollment for a year while you serve the public good in another country. You’ll do challenging, meaningful work in a school, social service agency, clinic, or another community service organization.

Your nine months of service will give you both an international perspective and a deep appreciation for the importance of serving society and the world. When you return, you’ll enter your first year at Princeton University with a wealth of experience and maturity.
