Dean's Fund for Study Abroad
Summer Study Abroad Funding Application
The Dean's Fund for Study Abroad offers competitive awards to students on financial aid who enroll in structured academic study abroad and language programs lasting at least four weeks. Please note that the Dean's Fund does not make awards in support of internships.
The application deadline is 11:59 p.m. on March 15, 2015. Review of applications begins after the application deadline. Applicants will be informed of the decision regarding their application by May 1. Note that preference is given to students who have not been funded before (which does not mean that you should not apply more than once).
Note: If you do not have an acceptance decision from the program to which you are applying by the March 15 deadline, you should go ahead and submit an application to the Dean's Fund. Your application will be disregarded if you are not accepted to the program. If you are funded for a program that you will not be attending, you must decline your funding award.
Please read the application guidelines before submitting your application.
Please note: Students who are seeking funding for Princeton in Beijing or Princeton in Ishikawa should NOT apply to the Dean's Fund. The Dean's Fund/OIP provides funds directly to the East Asian Studies Program for PIB and PII and awards are made as part of the program acceptance process.
If you have questions about whether you are eligible for funding from the Dean's Fund, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org

- As part of the online application to the Dean's Fund, you must designate one recommender who knows your academic qualifications well and upload the following documents:
- PDF of the program information if you are applying to a non-Princeton program, including course descriptions and the published, itemized cost of the program. N.B. You must submit official program materials (print or electronic) that break out the cost of tuition from the overall program fee. We cannot issue a check without this documentation. If the cost of tuition is not itemized, please follow-up with the program to find out what the cost is.
