Internships

Laboratory Learning Program

In support of Princeton University’s education and research mission, the University hosts exceptional high school students each summer to conduct research under the mentorship of Princeton faculty, staff, and students.

A select number of highly-motivated students from a large pool of outstanding applicants may be offered an opportunity to join a state-of-the-art research project. Faculty and research staff volunteer as mentors to provide high school students with this first-hand education in independent research in the fields of engineering and natural sciences. The number of opportunities varies each year and is typically in the range of 20 - 40 students total.
