The Princeton Summer Journalism Program (SJP) application opens every winter in early December for high-achieving current high school juniors from low-income backgrounds. We rely on our network of counselors, journalism and humanities teachers, school administrators, community organizations, and journalism organizations to share the information with students and their mentors. If you would like to be added to our mailing list, please sign up here. The 40 driven, intellectually curious aspiring journalists who ultimately participate in the program are chosen from a competitive pool of hundreds of applicants. Please review the eligibility guidelines to see if you or your student(s) qualify and also read about the application process.
The 2019 Princeton Summer Journalism Program application deadline has passed. We are no longer accepting new applications for the summer of 2019.
