Summer 2021 Internship Opportunities

summer internships

Please note: Due to Covid-19 there may be adjustments to internship opportunities. Whether internships take place on campus or at a non-profit organization will be contingent upon University guidelines for travel and on-campus operations.  At this time, we anticipate that the internships listed below will be performed remotely for summer 2021. We will provide updates as they become available and thank you for your patience and understanding in advance. 

Research opportunities with faculty members, as well as with non-profit organizations, are listed below. See application instructions and a link to the Student Activities Funding Engine (SAFE) here. Applications open in SAFE on November 30, 2020.

The final deadline for submitting applications is February 15, 2021.  If selected, students receive a stipend of $550/week. If health and safety conditions improve and on-site internships become possible, an award for research-related or travel-related expenses will be offered in addition to the stipend. Internships begin on or after May 24, 2021, last 8-10 weeks, and end no later than August 20, 2021.

application instructions

Applications must be submitted via SAFE.
Activity Type: Undergraduate Internships
Time Period: Summer Break
Opportunity:  Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment Summer Internships

  1. For internships with faculty members chosen from the list of available projects, include with the application: a copy of your transcript and a copy of your resume/CV. Though it is not required, we recommend contacting the faculty member whose internship you plan to apply for to let them know you are interested and find out additional details about the project.
  2. For self-initiated, internships with faculty members, include with the application: a project description of no more than two pages, a note from the faculty member who has agreed to supervise your project, a copy of your transcript and a copy of your resume/CV. Indicate whether the project can be worked on remotely
  3. For internships with non-profit organizations, include with the application: a copy of your transcript and a copy of your resume/CV. Applications for internships with these non-profits will be reviewed by the host organization in addition to Princeton faculty and program coordinators in order to determine the most suitable candidates for each position. The host organization may contact the student to arrange a telephone or Zoom interview. **Please carefully review the application requirements–some of the off campus opportunities may require a writing sample and cover letter.**

A few things to note about the SAFE application form:

  • In the “Project Details” section, under “Internship Title” put the specific title of the internship for which you are applying.
  • You do not need to complete the “Anticipated Expenses” section.  In March, when the administration determines whether internships may take place in person over the summer, funds for project materials or travel expenses will be addressed.
  • Be sure to complete the “Undergraduate Internships Questions” section. If a “Supervisor of Internship” is not listed in the internship description on our site, you do not need to fill this out.

Check that your application is submitted and locked before the February 15, 2021 final deadline. Incomplete and/or draft applications will not be considered.

If you have questions about the application process, email Moira Selinka, Andlinger Center Education Coordinator, at mselinka@princeton.edu .
