Visiting the Center
If you are interested in becoming involved with CITP, we encourage you to visit. The best way to do so is to come to one of the many events that we host. If you would like to stop by some other time, please contact us.

Each academic year, we issue a call for fellows to apply to spend up to a year at CITP. Fellows are a critical part of the Center’s intellectual life, and participate in many activities throughout the year. The application process is usually open from November 1st through the end of January. Please see the CITP home page during that time period for more information and links to the application.

Visiting Professor
CITP seeks candidates for a Visiting Professor position annually. Applicants must be currently appointed faculty members at an academic institution. Individuals may apply for a one- or two-year appointment, based on their individual circumstances and availability. We are happy to hear from any faculty member working at the intersection of digital technology and public life. This includes professors of computer science, sociology, economics, law, political science, public policy, information studies, communication, and other disciplines. The application process is usually open from November 1st through January 15th. Please see the CITP home page during that time period for more information.

There are many opportunities for undergraduates to be involved with CITP. We offer an undergraduate certificate through the Program in Information Technology and Society. Undergraduates often collaborate with CITP-affiliated faculty on research, participate in various events geared toward undergraduates, including our annual Tech Policy Boot Camp trip to DC during fall break, and use the Center as a resource to find summer internship and job opportunities in technology policy. Interested undergraduates may subscribe to our mailing list.

Current Undergraduate TS certificate students are listed here. If you have further questions about how to get involved, email CITP Center Manager Laura Cummings-Abdo at .

Graduate Students
Through the CITP Graduate Student Fellows program, current Princeton graduate students are involved in many of the activities here. They often work with with faculty, visiting fellows, and others at the center. They also contribute to CITP’s blog, Freedom to Tinker, and participate in several on-campus reading groups. Graduate Student Fellows may be given office space in Sherrerd Hall.

Note that if you are a prospective student, graduate study is most often pursued at the Center after acceptance to one of the degree-granting schools or departments on campus, such as the Woodrow Wilson School, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Politics, Economics, and Sociology. Students must apply for the graduate program by the annual deadline.
