The Princeton Prize in Race Relations

Princeton NJ — Since 2003, the University has awarded the Princeton Prize in Race Relations to high school age students whose efforts have had a significant, positive effect on race relations in their schools or communities.

  • The prize, which comes with a cash award of up to $1,000, is given each spring to applicants who present a description of the activity they have undertaken to promote racial understanding. A total of 22 prizes and 102 certificates of accomplishment have been given to students.

  • In its first year, the prize was awarded in two areas, Boston and Washington, D.C. Last year the prize was awarded in 10 cities, and another nine locations will be added for the coming academic year. The prize is overseen by a committee consisting primarily of Princeton alumni, as well as staff members of the University and current undergraduates.

  • Students have been recognized for a wide variety of achievements, from a project to improve relations between teachers and students of color to the creation of a student club with a chapter in Uganda to promote acceptance of other people’s cultures.

  • Applications for next year’s prize are due on Jan. 31. For more information, visit PrincetonPrize/.
