Grad Scholars Program (GSP)
The Princeton Grad Scholars Program (GSP) is an exciting new experience for entering first-year graduate students and pre-doctoral students from diverse backgrounds designed to enhance and support academic, social, and community development during their initial graduate school experience.
THE PROGRAM HAS THREE GOALS
To empower participants to take an intentional and strategic approach to their graduate education
To educate students about how to access the myriad resources available to them at Princeton
To develop a sense of community by connecting graduate students across disciplinary boundaries
Scholars meet six to eight times over the academic year for “seminar/workshop” sessions
that focus on the transition to graduate education at Princeton.
POTENTIAL TOPICS INCLUDE
Developing skills for time and task management to promote balance and success
Budgeting and financial planning for graduate school and beyond
Building your academic and non-academic community at Princeton
Developing positive practices for physical, emotional, and psychological self-care
Preparing for academic and non-academic career pathways
