Mentorship and social and academic support are necessities for graduate school success. For underrepresented students, who may be from low-income backgrounds and/or the first in their families to have attended college, that need often is felt even more keenly.

To enhance and support the academic, social and community development of underrepresented students during their studies, Princeton University’s Graduate School established the Graduate Scholars Program (GSP).

Now in its third year, GSP empowers students to take a strategic approach to their graduate education, and it allows students to more easily access the many resources that are available at Princeton and beyond.
