The trustees and president of Princeton University have set aside funds that are intended to support new initiatives that positively contribute to the quality of life at the University. Grants will be awarded to projects that address alcohol-related issues on campus including: education, alcohol abuse, and social cultures independent of alcohol-related activities. While impact on the undergraduate community serves as a primary focus, additional contributions to the larger community will be considered in evaluating proposals.
All members of the Princeton University community, including individual students and faculty, any student group, department or office, are eligible to apply for Alcohol Initiative Grants*. Particular consideration will be given to proposals that 1) are collaborative in nature, and 2) are partially funded by the sponsoring group. Individuals who do not represent an organization or University department are advised to contact the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students before submitting a proposal. *Residential college groups such as RCAs, RGSs and College Councils have alternative funding available through the college offices.
The Alcohol Initiative Grants Committee comprises the following: a representative of the Undergraduate Student Government, an undergraduate at-large, an associate dean of undergraduate students, and the dean of undergraduate students.
Proposals will be reviewed and evaluated by all members. The committee may request further details from the contact person designated in the application before deciding on the proposal. Within three weeks of the submission deadline, the committee will notify the contact person of the decision. We request that applicants not contact committee members or the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students with regard to their proposal during the evaluation process.
Reporting of awarded grants
The Alcohol Initiative Committee will publish a report each semester highlighting proposals that were funded by the Committee during that period. These reports and the original proposals are available in the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students and may be consulted by persons or groups submitting an application.
