The John C. Bogle ‘51 Fellows in Civic Service program (Bogle Fellowship) is a funded opportunity available exclusively to Princeton first years applicants and was developed to support student participation in service or civic engagement pursuits during the summer between first year and sophomore year.

Bogle Fellows design their own summer internship or project in collaboration with a host partner. Internships must be a minimum of eight weeks and must take place in the United States. Up to 20 first year students will be granted awards of $4,500 each.  Bogle Fellows can develop internships around any area of interest, as long as the internship/project is service or civic engagement oriented. Applicants are encouraged to think creatively about how to build upon their academic interests to make a positive societal impact. Students interested in all disciplines are welcome to apply.

Bogle Fellows participate in spring preparation workshops and advisory groups to prepare them for their service or civic engagement-related project or internship. During the summer between first year and sophomore year, Bogle Fellows immerse themselves in their project or internship. Once back on campus the fall of sophomore year, Bogle Fellows reflect upon and connect their summer experiences with their academic work and/or career interests.

 
We invite Princeton freshmen to apply. Applications are due by 11:59:59 PM EST on Sunday, February 12, 2017.

The Bogle Fellows program encourages you to expand your understanding of how service can be carried out and how your contribution to the public good can address issues across any number of disciplines and professions. For example, Bogle Fellows could tackle issues related to entrepreneurship, technology, government, the arts, the sciences or business through a variety of methods such as policy, advocacy, research, direct service and community activism. You are encouraged to think creatively about how to build upon your academic interests to contribute to making a positive societal impact.
