Honorific Fellowship Recipients

The extraordinary nature of our community is underscored by the contributions our scholars are already making in their fields. Each spring, Princeton’s departments and programs nominate students whose work shows exceptional promise. Final selection is made by the dean of the Graduate School and the academic affairs deans, in consultation with the Faculty Committee.
