The Princeton Prize in Race Relations

Applying is easy! Remember, you must be in high school to in order to apply and you must be in one of our 27 regions in order to win the Prize.


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.

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. Both parts of the application are due by January 31, 2020. Apply now!
