Summer & Research Funding
Academic departments at Princeton often have some funding available to support undergraduate research. You should contact the relevant department or program office to inquire about availability of funds. Please note that financial support for freshman and sophomore research proposals may be limited.
Students planning to study abroad over the summer can apply for funding from the Office of International Programs.
Summer Project Funding
There are a number of resources on campus for students who wish to develop and implement a summer project. These funds typically support public service projects of educational value rather than academic research per se. http://www.princeton.edu/pace/pdf/funding.pdf
The Martin A. Dale '53 Summer Awards provide 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.
The Student Activities Funding Engine (SAFE) http://www.princeton.edu/studentfunding/ is a one-stop source of information about all University funding available for a wide variety of undergraduate academic, extra-curricular and co-curricular activities and projects. As of spring 2013, all funding applications for summer study abroad, senior thesis research, internships, junior project research, independent work and undergraduate conference travel must be submitted through SAFE . Applications for funding in support of student group activities on and off campus will be processed through SAFE beginning in spring 2014.
