The University has committed a total of $1 million to four programs that it is creating to assist individuals, especially young people, most directly affected by the September 11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and to help support New York City's renewal and recovery from those attacks.

The four programs are designed to provide live arts and cultural experiences, along with complementary educational programs, for up to 10,000 New York City-area schoolchildren; provide $250,000 in scholarship support for students at New York's John Jay College of Criminal Justice; provide week-long programs next summer on the Princeton campus or at the Princeton-Blairstown Center for children who lost parents in the attacks; and provide funds to support faculty and staff who are able to contribute special expertise to New York's renewal, rebuilding and recovery, and to support related student research.
