Application Process

How to Apply to PSJP

The application for the summer of 2023 is now live closed. We are no longer accepting new applications. 

If you are currently a 9th or 10th grader, you can sign-up here to be contacted when the application opens in future years.

Students apply in the winter-spring of their junior year and participate in the program during the summer following their junior year through the end of their senior year. No exceptions will be made for students in any other grades. 

2023 Program Dates: Taking advantage of lessons learned during the virtual experience of the program in 2020-2022, the Princeton Summer Journalism Program will run the first-ever hybrid summer intensive during the summer of 2023. Participants will attend virtual workshops and lectures and complete related assignments online in July. The summer intensive will culminate with a 10-day residential experience on Princeton's campus from July 28 - August 7, 2023.

Students complete three rounds to apply for PSJP. Details for each round are below.
