How to Apply
Click here for tips on applying for an IIP Placement. Note: Do not fill out internship applications you find on company/organization websites. The IIP has a special relationship with the companies and organizations listed on the IIP website, so much of the information that you may read on company/organization websites about their internships will not apply to you.
All IIP placements (including Princeton in France positions) automatically qualify for an internship grant. You do not need to fill out an IIP Funding Application. If you find an internship on your own, you can apply for funding using the IIP Funding Application. You should also investigate the various Princeton University funds and consult your department for assistance. Students on financial aid should also review information about summer savings replacement.
Participants are expected to work full time for the entire length of the internship period (a minimum of eight weeks). Applicants should be resourceful, flexible, motivated, responsible, comfortable in an unfamiliar setting, and open to new experiences and cultures other than their own. Students should understand the responsibilities attendant with serving as a representative of Princeton University and take this commitment seriously.
- The University reserves the right to revoke sponsorship if there is a significant deterioration or reasonable expectation of deterioration in the safety and security conditions in the country where travel will occur, or if the University assesses a lack of compliance on the student’s behalf with Rights, Rules, Responsibilities, the laws of the country of travel, or the internship provider’s regulations and policies.
- Students are required to respond to communication from IIP during the course of the internship.
- Students are responsible for obtaining and securing their own flight, visa, lodging, medical insurance, immunization and local transportation in accordance with any applicable policies in Rights, Rules and Responsibilities. IIP will provide advice and help when needed and should be contacted immediately when any issues arise in these preparations.
- All IIP placements come with a financial award that is estimated to cover the following expenses. For all interns, the IIP award is estimated to cover meals, lodging, local transportation, and transportation to and from the airport. For students on financial aid, IIP awards are also estimated to cover a roundtrip flight from Newark to the host country.
- IIP internships are considered fully funded,and students may not apply for additional funds through the SAFE portal at Princeton University unless a request has been made to IIP in writing and IIP approval has been received. Students are responsible for any additional expenses incurred in excess of University funding.
