OVERVIEW

The Princeton Start-Up Immersion Program (PSIP) is a 10-week summer internship experience for students interested in gaining first-hand knowledge of the world of emerging businesses at early-stage startups. Students work alongside key decision makers, live as a cohort in Princeton-sponsored housing, and participate in professional development, networking, cultural and social opportunities. Startup companies that host PSIP students are carefully selected for their desire to offer strong mentorship and provide high-impact opportunities for students to experience life in the world of startups.

"The quality of the startups, the amazing housing and the fact that we were housed with 30+ other students, all the activities planned for us...I'm confident PSIP is the best internship program from Princeton. Fantastic work!" Xiao Y. '18, COS

"PSIP was exceptionally successful at building and maintaining a sense of community through the weekly events. I made a tremendous number of new friends who I wouldn've never met outside of the program" Sarah P. '19 COS
