Welcome to Princeton’s Bridge Year Program
Bridge Year is a tuition-free program that allows a select number of Princeton students to delay the start of their freshman year in order to engage in nine months of University-sponsored service at one of five international locations. In addition to supporting community-based initiatives at each program site, Bridge Year aims to provide participants with greater international perspective and intercultural skills, an opportunity for personal growth and reflection, and a deeper appreciation of service in both a local and international context.
For students admitted to Princeton's Class of 2019, application for the 2015-16 program is now open. Click here to read about How to Apply.
