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 an eight-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 with other summer internship programs, ASAP interns have the opportunity to continue their work at Princeton into their fall semester.
