Princeton will enhance its groundbreaking financial aid program

Most families with income up to $100,000 a year will pay nothing. Read the story.

Outside Scholarships

All outside scholarships (including tuition benefits, ROTC, etc.) must be reported to the Financial Aid Office to be incorporated into the financial aid package. Please email to report scholarship and donor information. Since Princeton meets students’ full financial need, and outside scholarships are additional resources intended to reduce financial need, they cannot be used to replace the family contribution and Princeton grant will be reduced instead. 

If your Princeton grant is reduced as the result of an outside scholarship, you may recover reduced funds toward the one-time purchase of a personal computer. This policy applies to basic hardware and software products up to $3,500.

Federal and state grants are need-based and are considered part of the overall Princeton financial aid package. Although they reduce Princeton grant, they are not considered outside scholarships and are not eligible for the educational technology policy.

Please note that VA benefits (Chapter 33, etc.) are not considered outside scholarships.

Students searching for outside scholarships may wish to visit or the Army ROTC website.
