The School of Engineering and Applied Science invites high-achieving, rising college seniors majoring in STEM disciplines to participate in Pathways to Graduate School for Rising College Seniors.

The program will start with a one-day virtual event followed by monthly virtual workshops throughout the fall. The program will provide: 

  1. A better understanding of graduate education through exposure to current graduate students and faculty representing our six engineering graduate programs
  2. Resources and ongoing support to successfully navigate the graduate school application process.
  3. Applicants must demonstrate a strong academic record and excellent research and scholarship potential.

Princeton Engineering brings together people from across academic disciplines, from industry, non-profits and government, and from all nations and backgrounds in a collaborative culture to achieve breakthroughs of benefit to humanity. Thus the Pathways program especially seeks candidates with strong potential to contribute – through their future research, teaching, and service – to the diversity and excellence of our academic community and STEM fields as a whole. Women and other historically underrepresented groups in STEM disciplines are encouraged to apply.


Applicants will be current or rising college seniors and must be majoring in a STEM discipline. Applicants must be high-achieving with a strong academic record (minimum GPA 3.5). An unofficial transcript and a letter of recommendation from a faculty member familiar with your work is required.
