Scholarships: Opening Doors, Transforming Lives

February 10th, 2017 / Development Com...

Princeton’s financial aid program is one of the most generous in the country.

These scholarships are at the heart of the University’s need-blind admission and “no-loan” policies. Need-blind admission means that Princeton students learn with—and from—peers of different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives.

Scholarships Help Students Soar

An unusual letter arrived on campus recently from the mother of a freshman: “I need to give back in some way,” wrote Kuntal Parikh, whose son, Agastya, receives scholarship support. “I do not have financial resources to contribute, but am more than willing to do anything else…absolutely anything, from filling envelopes to filing to making calls to making endless cups of Indian chai lattes or dinners or anything else that you can think of.”
