Princeton Start-Up Immersion Program (PSIP) – NYC

PSIP NYC students at various internships

Overview

​PSIP-NYC places some of Princeton’s most promising students in high-impact summer internships at early-stage startups in New York City.  As a PSIP intern, you will receive a paid internship while working alongside key decision makers, live in the heart of New York City as a cohort in Princeton-sponsored housing, and participate in professional development, networking, cultural and social activities during the 10-week immersion program. Partner startup hosts are carefully selected for their desire to offer strong mentorship and provide meaningful and impactful projects in which students can gain first-hand experience in the world of startups.
