Application to the 2022 Summer School is open now!


Please read carefully the below anti-COVID Policy:

Participants must be fully vaccinated to be allowed inside buildings that are occupied by Princeton University. All participants must comply with the current requirements for face coverings. Fully vaccinated means that at least two weeks have passed since receiving the second dose of a two-dose vaccine or the single dose of a one-dose vaccine.
