Aspiring Scholars and Professionals (ASAP) is a cohort program at Princeton’s Emma Bloomberg Center for Access & Opportunity, designed to introduce undergraduates from other New Jersey colleges and universities to higher education careers in the humanities and qualitative social sciences. The program begins with a nine-week summer institute on the campus of Princeton University. During that time, students participate in professional development and research methods workshops, and are paired with a Princeton faculty or staff member for a research or professional internship. Unlike other summer internship programs, ASAP aims to help connect students with faculty or staff members on their home campuses, for academic-year research or professional internships. Periodic programming at Princeton, throughout the academic year following the summer, seeks to bring together ASAP interns, their home campus mentors, and Princeton summer mentors to inspire cross-institutional connections.
