Princeton in Washington

PIW participants in front of the Capitol

Princeton in Washington brings together students and alumni in the Washington, D.C. area over the summer for speaker and panel discussions, social events and more. 

Participants have an opportunity to meet high-profile alumni and professionals, explore careers in public service, connect with peers and learn about opportunities in politics, law, nonprofit, arts and more.

The program is open to all undergraduate and graduate students, as well as young alumni. There is no application process; however, all participants must RSVP to attend programs and can do so only by signing up to be on the PIW mailing list.

Princeton in Washington is sponsored by the Center for Career Development with support from the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs, the Office of Government Affairs and the Princeton Club of Washington, D.C.
