Who is eligible for the Princeton Prize?
Any student currently enrolled in grades 9 through 12 in participating regions.
What activities will qualify for Princeton Prize consideration?
The candidate must have been actively involved in a volunteer activity in the last 12 months that has had a significant, positive impact on race relations in his or her school or community.
How will successful candidates be recognized?
In each region, there will be a $1,000 Prize (which may be shared by two individual applicants or split between two or three group applicant winners). Individual Prize winners will be invited to Princeton University to participate in the Princeton Prize Symposium on Race in the spring. If a Prize is awarded to a group, the National Board of the Princeton Prize in Race Relations will support only one attendee per group project to attend the Symposium.
Other honorees will receive Certificates of Accomplishment. We expect that the awards will be presented at a local awards ceremony and announcements about winners will be sent to local press and posted on the Princeton Prize website.
What is the deadline for applications?
Applications must be submitted online or mailed and postmarked by January 31, 2019 to: The Princeton Prize in Race Relations, Alumni Association of Princeton University, P. O. Box 291, Princeton, New Jersey 08542-0291.
Best of luck to all applicants!
