The Center for Information Technology Policy (CITP) is an interdisciplinary center at Princeton University. The center is a nexus of expertise in technology, engineering, public policy, and the social sciences on campus. In keeping with the strong University tradition of service, the center’s research, teaching, and events address digital technologies as they interact with society.
The goal of the CITP Emerging Scholars program is to train scholars who have completed their undergraduate studies but require more coursework or research preparation to improve their chances of admission to highly competitive Ph.D. programs or another competitive career path. The program provides intensive research and/or work experience, coursework, and mentoring. The ideal outcome for participants is to either enter a competitive graduate program or to find an impactful placement in government, nonprofits, or the private sector. The Emerging Scholars program is for people who have received a bachelor's degree (or will receive one by the time of appointment) in fields such as computer science, sociology, economics, political science, psychology, public policy, information science, communication, philosophy, and other related technology policy disciplines.
CITP Emerging Scholars program participants are hired as salaried research specialists for a period of two years to conduct research under the direction of a faculty mentor and will receive all benefits associated with their status as regular University staff.
