The Princeton Prize is for students in grades 9-12 who are doing “outstanding work” in their schools or communities to advance the cause of improving race relations.
Applicant must have an adult “supporter” – teacher, advisor, community/religious leader or other adult who can attest to and support the applicant’s work in race relations.
The Princeton Prize in Race Relations recognizes and rewards high school students who have had a significant positive effect on race relations in their schools or communities through their volunteer efforts.
Prize recipients receive a cash prize of $1,000 and an all-expenses-paid weekend to a Symposium on Race at Princeton University where they will meet and engage with other Prize recipients from across the country.
Prize recipients are recognized at ceremonies in their local regions by Princeton alumni. PPRR operates through 27 Regional Committees and has an At-Large Regional Committee to support areas where we currently have no geographic presence.
