The '95 Summer Service Fund is sponsored by the Class of '95, a 501(c)(3) organization. The Fund provides financial support to Princeton undergraduates pursuing public or community service endeavors, in the United States or abroad. Hundreds of members of the Class of 1995 have contributed to the fund since its inception in 1995, when the Class became the youngest ever to create such a fund. Three inaugural recipients received awards at the Class of 1995's Fifth Reunion for projects in the summer of 2000. Two additional undergraduates received awards in the summer of 2001.
