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 through their volunteer efforts.

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

Prize recipients are recognized at ceremonies in their local regions by 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.
