Each year the Princeton Prize in Race Relations, a program sponsored by Princeton University, seeks to honor students in grades 9-12 who are doing outstanding work in their schools or communities to advance the cause of race relations. This year the Princeton Prize will be offered in the greater metropolitan regions of Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Memphis, Miami, Nashville, New York City, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Rochester, San Diego, San Francisco, St. Louis, Settle and Washington D.C. , and the states of Alabama, Connecticut and New Jersey. It is our hope that you will identify youth in your community and encourage them to apply.
The Alabama Local Committee of the Princeton Prize invites these students to apply for a $1,000 cash award for the 2016-2017 school year. Princeton Prize winners will also be invited to an all-expenses-paid trip to Princeton University to attend the Princeton Prize Symposium on Race, which will be held April 27-29, 2017. The students will discuss race relations with Princeton University professors, and community-leaders in workshops and lectures, and they will be recognized for the work that they have done.
The application can be downloaded from www.princeton.edu/pprize, where you will find additional information about the prize.
You can contact the national program at either 1-800-742-1036 or PPrize@princeton.edu, and Alysia D. Franklin, Co-Chair of Alabama Committee of the Princeton Prize at email@example.com if you have any other questions. We would also be happy to arrange a visit to your organization by local Princeton alumni to describe the program in detail and answer any questions you or others may have.
The deadline for applications is January 31, 2017.
