Princeton Prize recipients smiling

Application will be open soon! Remember, you must be in high school in the United States in order to apply. We do not accept group applications. So, if you are applying for a project that was done as a group of no more than 3, please have each member of your group apply individually.

    Sound like someone you know? Nominate a student!


    Each committee evaluates applications on each of three criteria.

    1. The first is the significance of your activity and how it promotes racial harmony, understanding, and mutual respect among community members.
    2. We also consider how important your role was in the activity.
    3. Finally, we consider the scope and impact of your activity on the community.

    Two-Part Application

    There are two parts of the application — one for you and one for your sponsor. Your sponsor must be a teacher, advisor, community or religious leader, or other responsible adult, who is not related to you, and who oversaw your project or who has directly witnessed your project's outcome. They must be familiar with the work you are presenting for the Prize. Each part of the application can be completed separately online — OR — downloaded, printed and mailed. Both parts of the application are due by January 31, 2020.

    Mail-In Option

    Applicants and supporters also have the option to mail in their forms.
