Meet Austin Guo, JHC’s 2023 Princeton PICS Intern

JHC is thrilled to welcome Austin Guo, our 2023 fellow through the Princeton Internships in Civil Service (PICS) program. This is the second year JHC has partnered with Princeton on the PICS program. Austin is a rising sophomore at Princeton majoring in Astrophysics and pursuing minors in Applied and Computational Mathematics, Computer Science, and French. He is a copy editor and print designer for the Daily Princetonian, Princeton’s student newspaper, and a member of its Quiz Bowl academic competition team. He will be joining us from June to August.

The Princeton PICS internships are selective and prestigious; in 2020, more than 500 applicants applied for just 200 positions. Founded in 1996, the PICS program is designed to offer undergraduates paid internship positions at a variety of nonprofit organizations, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the New-York Historical Society, the 92nd Street Y, and many other prominent cultural institutions.

The Jay Estate, for its part, has a long history of ties with Princeton University, including prominent alumni who lived at the estate and others who remain involved with the non-profit to this day.
