Princeton Prospective Ph.D. Preview (P3) Program

The Princeton Prospective Ph.D. Preview (P3) is a nationally recognized program that focuses on engaging scholars from historically underrepresented groups around the path to the Ph.D. The program prepares scholars for the graduate admissions process, provides skill and professional development workshops, and provides a unique opportunity to learn more about graduate education at Princeton. P3 Scholars will also have the opportunity to connect with Princeton graduate students, faculty, and staff.

P3 invites the class of 2023, 2024, 2025, and post-grad students to apply! This program is open to any interested students, however, we highly encourage participation from first-generation/low-income (FLI) students and historically underrepresented groups (which include African Americans, Latinos, and Native Americans) given the disparity in graduate education across the country.
