Each year hundreds of high school students apply to receive the Princeton Prize in Race Relations. Princeton alumni across the country work in committees to solicit applications, read them and choose prize and certificate recipients for their regions. For many alumni, being part of a Princeton Prize committee is one of the most meaningful ways to volunteer for Princeton.
Sponsored by the class of 1966, the Princeton Prize Symposium on Race is an annual gathering to recognize the regional Princeton Prize winners. This two and a half day event includes presentations by the winners, as well as conversations and workshops on race relations with local high school students, Princeton students, alumni and faculty.
