Remote possibilities: Virtual internships connect Princeton students to academic, service opportunities

August 20th, 2020

In a typical summer, thousands of Princeton students are scattered across the country and around the globe for internships that enrich their academic focus, provide valuable work experience, jumpstart their professional network and expand their worldview.

The pandemic changed all that, taking in-person internships off the table.

Enter the virtual internship. This summer, the University — including academic departments and programs, the Pace Center, Career Services, alumni and others — helped students pivot from their original plans to a wide variety of internships that are 100% digital. 

In this story, six undergraduates reflect on their remote summer internship experiences:
