Staff & Faculty Fellows

Faculty or Staff Fellows partner with our program to provide mentorship and support for our first-gen/low-income SIFP students. Fellows are required to hold at least 10 office hours through their calendars for SIFP students and attend various co-curricular workshops and events to engage with the larger SIFP community per semester. Our fellows are eager to help SIFPeeps navigate life at Princeton and offer timely advice. See below for our 2023-2024 Faculty and Staff Fellows, and feel free to email them to introduce yourself!
