Do I have to attend a school that is part of the PIT-UN network?
Yes. Click here for the list of universities that are members. Only applications from students attending schools in the PIT-UN network will be considered.
What is the stipend?
The stipend for the 2023 program will be posted here, once available. The stipend will be payable in the 1st week of the program and the remainder at the conclusion of the program. Please note students will be taxed on the stipend. International students will have the taxes immediately taken out by the finance office, while domestic students will need to pay the tax on the stipend when filing their yearly taxes.
Is housing included?
No, you must find and pay for your own accommodations during their fellowship.
Where should I upload my resume and transcript?
Please upload them in the “add file” section of the application form.
Will I get to select where I work?
We will ask for your preferences but the agency and the program administrators will determine the final placements.
Can international students apply?
Yes, but there are fewer opportunities as many government agencies require U.S. citizenship. Also, you will be responsible for coordinating any visa-related paperwork.
What travel costs are covered?
The program will pay for reasonable travel costs to and from the host agencies and back to Princeton for the wrap-up workshop. Accommodations and meals will also be provided.
What does the orientation seminar cover?
Orientation will provide an overview of tech policy, discuss rules and regulations and provide tips on having a successful fellowship. Guest speakers and case studies are also usually part of orientation.
Where will I work over the summer?
Positions with a variety of federal, state, and local agencies will be available. In the past, students have worked with the Federal Trade Commission, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and the New York City Mayor’s Office of the Chief Technology Officer.
How will COVID-19 affect the program?
The fellowship will operate in cooperation with current COVID-19 pandemic restrictions and guidelines.
