The Princeton Prize in Race Relations recognizes and rewards high school students who have had a significant positive effect on race relations in their schools or communities.

Award winners receive a cash prize of $1,000 and an all-expense-paid weekend to a national symposium on race at Princeton University.

Each winner is also recognized at a ceremony in their region by local Princeton alumni. 

PPRR operates in 27 regions nationally and is growing at a steady pace. We are a volunteer-run organization enlisting the support of over 300 Princeton alumni, all dedicated to an inclusive and supportive society.

Past Winners

Winners of the Princeton Prize in Race Relations have stood up to intolerance, worked towards greater inclusivity, and encouraged understanding and harmony in their communities. Some have even been recognized by President Obama for their efforts.
