Dean's Fund for Study Abroad
Summer Study Abroad Funding Opportunity
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 (domestic or international) lasting at least four weeks. Limited funding is allocated based on the level of need, academic motivation, and the application essay.
The Dean’s Fund does not make awards in support of internships. 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.
The application deadline is 11:59 p.m. on March 6, 2017. 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).
Even if you do not have an acceptance decision from the program to which you are applying by the March 6th deadline, you should still 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.Completing a Dean's Fund Application involves the following steps:
- Complete the Online Application through the Student Activities Funding Engine (SAFE).
- If you are applying to a non-Princeton program, designate one recommender who knows your academic qualifications (Princeton program applicants do not need to submit a recommendation).
You must also upload the following documents:
- PDF of your electronic academic record from TigerHub. Click here for instructions for getting your electronic academic record from TigerHub.
- 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. 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 obtain the cost breakdown.
Incomplete applications will not be considered.
