Princeton University’s Bridge Year Program is a tuition-free program that allows a select number of incoming freshmen to begin their Princeton experience by engaging in nine months of University-sponsored community service at one of five international locations.
Bridge Year currently offers programs in Bolivia, China, India, Indonesia, and Senegal.
Program participants live with host families, study the language, and volunteer at local organizations.
In addition to supporting community-based initiatives at each program site, Bridge Year aims to provide participants with greater international perspective and intercultural skills, an opportunity for personal growth and reflection, and a deeper appreciation of service in both a local and international context.
