Summer 2023 Coach for College Applications Are Now Open

Applications for Coach for College, a three-week summer service program, are now open! The deadline to apply is Sunday, January 29th.

Coach for College is a program open to varsity student-athletes, including graduating seniors, which promotes higher education among underprivileged Vietnamese students. This unique program invites American student-athletes to travel abroad and gain valuable leadership experience as they teach, coach and mentor youth in rural Vietnam.

The PVC will once again sponsor up to (7) student-athletes to take advantage of this program during the summer of 2023 and will fund approximately $4,180 per participant (includes airfare, ground transportation, lodging, meals, visa processing, uniforms, etc.). Participants will be asked to fundraise $1,000 to cover additional costs of the program.

Participants can choose from three different camp sessions, with the dates noted below.

  • Camp #1: May 24th – June 19th
  • Camp #2: June 21st – July 17th 
  • Camp #3: July 19th – August 14th 

Applications will be reviewed by the Coach for College program and members of the Princeton Athletics Department, with formal offers extended to selected student-athletes in mid-February.

Please reach out to Melissa Stephens (Assistant Manager, Athletics Advancement, mstephens@princeton.edu) with any questions regarding the program or the application process.
