The Princeton Prize in Race Relations
The Princeton Prize in Race Relations is open to high school students grades 9-12. Candidates must have been actively involved in volunteer activities within the last 12 months that have had a significant, positive impact on race relations in their school or community.
Applicants must also live in one of the 26 participating U.S. cities. Cash prizes will be awarded to each of the region winners. They will also be invited to attend an all-expense paid trip to the Princeton Prize Symposium on Race in the Spring.
All applications must be supported by a letter of recommendation from a teacher, adviser, community or religious leader, or other responsible person who can vouch for the applicant's work activity.
The Princeton Prize in Race Relations is offered annually through the Alumni Association of Princeton, Princeton University. The purpose of the scholarship is to increase understanding and cooperation among people of different racial backgrounds.
The deadline for this scholarship is usually in JANUARY of each year, and the award amount is usually $1,000.
