What is FSI?
FSI is a seven-week summer program that allows a cohort of entering students the chance to experience the intellectual, co-curricular, and social life at Princeton prior to the beginning of the fall semester. During the program, our Freshman Scholars have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the intellectually vibrant culture at Princeton through seminar-style courses and/or laboratory research experiences, to engage with their fellow scholars in a variety of co-curricular, community-building activities, and to work closely with faculty members from a range of academic disciplines and fields. By experiencing early the many resources that Princeton has to offer, Freshman Scholars have the chance to prepare themselves to be future campus leaders and peer mentors. The FSI program is designed as a fellowship opportunity that you can attend without an additional financial burden. It is therefore of no cost to students receiving any amount of grant aid from the university. Students who do not receive grant aid from the university will still get free tuition and textbooks, but will be responsible for paying for room and board.
In the summer of 2015, FSI will begin on July 19 (Sunday) and conclude on September 4 (Friday). Scholars will live on campus in a residential college (Butler College) and will take two credit-bearing courses.
