Dale Sophomore Award Application Due 2/13!
Dreaming of the summer of a lifetime? Sophomores are invited to apply for the Martin A. Dale '53 Summer Award, proposing projects for summer 2013. This award provides financial support to enable a small number of Princeton University sophomores to pursue worthy projects that provide important opportunities for personal growth, foster independence, creativity, and leadership skills, and broaden or deepen some area of special interest. Write a play! Undertake a pilgrimage! Apprentice yourself to a master builder! Live on a commune! Learn to tango! How would YOU spend the summer of a lifetime?
Past projects have included:
-- Special programs or projects in the creative arts
-- Community service projects
-- Programs of study that don't satisfy academic requirements at Princeton or independent study projects
-- International travel and exploration designed to fulfill a goal
It is required that the project will take eight weeks or more of the summer. Selections will be based on the worthiness of the project and its particular value to the individual. The award is intended to allow students the freedom to pursue areas of personal interest that they might otherwise be unable or unlikely to explore further.
Application available in the Rockefeller College office, or email Dr. Caswell Klein.
