Prospective Students

Welcome to Princeton!

We are so excited to be able to connect with you and share information around what Programs for Access Inclusion offers our first-generation/low-income student community at Princeton. 

During our "Why FLI @ Princeton Virtual Preview Week," we will be providing a series of testimonials, videos, panels, and virtual events where you can learn more about our current FLi Princeton students and ask them your pressing questions. These may include questions around the following topics:

  • Financial Aid
  • Finding Community
  • Connecting with Professors, Classes, & Academics More Broadly
  • Finding Internships and General Opportunities During Your First Year
