IIP-SII Funding Application
The IIP-SII Funding Application should be used to apply for funding for a Student Initiated Internship - nan internship that students have created or found on their own. IIP does not support internships found through for-profit placement agencies.
The internship must be unpaid, a minimum of eight weeks long, and located outside of the U.S.
Note that preference is given to first-time applicants. You must currently be fully enrolled as a Princeton freshman, sophomore, or junior to apply.
You may want to review How to Find Your Own International Internship.
Note: In principle, Princeton University will not fund or sponsor undergraduate student travel to countries on the U.S. State Department Warning List or to countries where the United States has issued travel restrictions. Students who have a compelling educational reason to travel to such countries may submit a request for an individual travel exemption.The travel exemption process is a time intensive process. Travelers should allow at least four weeks for the review process.
Please carefully read the following instructions.
To complete an IIP Funding Application, you must:

In addition, you must submit the following materials to the Office of International Programs, 36 University Place, Suite 340 (U-Store Building) by the deadline (3 p.m., March 24, 2015).
