About Global Summer
More than 1,300 Princeton undergraduate and graduate students traveled throughout the United States and to 90 countries around the globe last summer for academic study, independent research, internships and civic engagement projects. In this interactive feature, you can take a global journey with more than two dozen students from many disciplines who engaged in a broad array of opportunities in summer 2013 by selecting pinpoints on the map below.
"It's our goal for every Princeton student to have at least one significant international or intercultural experience, making this a core part of a Princeton education," Davies said. "In fact, many students already take advantage of the programs and funding support available to them to go abroad multiple times."
Princeton's numerous summer opportunities are made possible through grants, awards and the University's partnerships. Students can find funding information on the Student Activities Funding Engine (SAFE) website.
