We hope the following list of resources available through Forbes College and the University to support individual or group projects will be helpful to you.
Forbes Specific Funds
For events, programs, projects and initiatives located in Forbes or of direct benefit to the Forbes community we encourage you to contact the Forbes College Office. The Dale Summer Award provides generous funds for projects and travel during the summer between sophomore and junior year. The Dale Award is the main resource for individual student projects and related travel expenses that take place outside of the college. The Dale Summer Award is not limited to residents of Forbes College, however, the application and interview process are handled first by each residential college and then final award decisions are made by a central review board. Please consult with Director of Studies, Patrick Caddeau, in the Forbes College Office should you have questions about the award.
|Funding from University Sources
If your funding needs are for events or projects not specific to the Forbes community, we suggest that you review the following list of University-wide resources designed to support student projects, programs, and initiatives:
The office of the Vice President for Campus Life provides funding for individual and group projects.
The office of the Dean of the College provides a list of fellowships and grants to support projects related to academic work. Students are also encouraged to discuss projects and proposals related to their academic work with their faculty adviser and departmental representatives. If you are a first or second year student and have not yet declared your concentration you are encouraged to speak with the departmental representative in the department that would support your academic interests. Often individual departments have the most current advice on funds available to support student travel and research in areas related to the department's academic goals and areas of interest.
The Fred Fox Class of 1939 Fund supports projects related to academic research and educational enrichment and is administered through the Office of Religious Life.
The office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students also provides information on funding for student proposals and events.
The Office of the Alumni Association also has a list of funds to support undergraduate academic projects.
If you have a proposal that is international in scope you might also contact the Davis International Center and inquire if they have funds or programs that might be able to support your project.
The Student Activities Funding Engine (SAFE) http://www.princeton.edu/studentfunding/
is a one-stop source of information about all University funding available for a wide variety of undergraduate academic, extra-curricular and co-curricular activities and projects. As of spring 2013, all funding applications for summer study abroad, senior thesis research, internships, junior project research, independent work and undergraduate conference travel must be submitted through SAFE . Applications for funding in support of student group activities on and off campus will be processed through SAFE beginning in spring 2014.
Your chances of securing funding are best if you apply well in advance, have a detailed and well organized proposal or project in mind, and do your homework in terms of applying to the most appropriate resources. Good luck!
