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

Outside scholarships replace your student contribution. Once this is eliminated, any additional outside scholarships will replace your Princeton grant.

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 do not replace the student earnings expectation—instead, these need-based awards reduce Princeton grant.

All outside scholarships must be reported to our office—to report scholarship and donor information, please email

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