The Bridge Year Program at Princeton University

Attention all high school students: seriously consider Princeton University in your choice of college applications! I recently learned about an exciting and innovative international education opportunity for admitted freshman students at Princeton University that I thought I would alert IHEC Blog readers to. I won’t summarize all of the Bridge Year Program details in this post as I encourage you to visit the program website to learn more. However, I have copied and pasted a snippet from the Bridge Year Program website to give you a taste of what Princeton University is doing:

“Designed especially for incoming freshmen, Princeton’s new Bridge Year Program allows you to defer your enrollment for a year while you serve the public good in another country. You’ll do challenging, meaningful work in a school, social service agency, clinic, or another community service organization. Your nine months of service will give you both an international perspective and a deep appreciation for the importance of serving society and the world. When you return, you’ll enter your first year at Princeton University with a wealth of experience and maturity.”

Best of all…the Bridge Year Program is tuition free! You can learn more about this program
