summer internships

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). Applications open on November 22, 2021. Eligible students in good academic and judicial standing may apply for up to two Andlinger Center summer internship opportunities.

The final deadline for submitting applications is January 10, 2022.  If selected, students receive a stipend of $600/week, plus a research-related or travel-related award if applicable.  Internships begin on or after May 23, 2022, last 8-12 weeks, and end no later than August 19, 2022.

Please note: At this time, it is anticipated that internships will take place in person.  However, internship opportunities may be subject to change, i.e. converted to remote or cancelled, based upon University Covid-19 guidelines for travel and on-campus operations.

Students on a leave of absence for the 2021-22 academic year are not eligible to apply for Andlinger Center Summer 2022 Internships.

Activity Type: Undergraduate Internships
Time Period: Summer Break
Opportunity:  Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment Undergraduate 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 budget for project materials if needed, 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.  If the internship is located outside of Princeton, include your anticipated travel expenses in the budget section. 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 non-profit opportunities may require a writing sample and cover letter.**

A few things to note about the SAFE application form:

  • In the Budget section, put $1.00 if you do not have travel expenses or project materials to include. The stipend is a set amount so there is no need to estimate your summer lodging/food costs, but the form cannot be submitted without a dollar amount.
  • In the “Project Details” section, under “Internship Title” put the specific title of the internship for which you are applying.
  • 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 January 10, 2022 final deadline. Incomplete and/or draft applications will not be considered.

If you have questions about the application process, email Moira Selinka, Program Manager, Education and Outreach, at mselinka@princeton.edu.
