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.
