Alumni Engagement

Alumni (and friends!) play a hugely important and powerful role in our FLI community, helping us to surround our scholars with mentorship, guidance, and care!

We recognize that there is no "one-size-fits-all" brand of mentorship, so there are many different ways for you to get involved. 

For instance, you may want to get to know students through our virtual alumni chats, sharing the story of your own experiences via our Pathways through Princeton program, offering glimpses of what you career entails through our “A Day in the Life” series, and participating in our FLI student/alumni mentorship program. Through these opportunities, you can connect with students about your time at Princeton, career shadowing opportunities, and for general professional development and career advice.

You may also be interested in being featured in one of our "Spotlight on an Alum" social media posts. If you  identified as a first-generation or low-income student at Princeton, we'd love to have you share your story with current SIFP Fellows through an online feature about first-gen, low-income (FLi) alumni!

If you’re interested in any of these opportunities or have questions, please contact Dr. Andy Hakim ( and Courtney Perales ( We’d love to hear from you!
