Princeton Fellowships

Both the Graduate School and our campus partners offer generous funding to promote academic innovation across disciplines.

Central to our financial support model, Princeton University fellowships are provided to all incoming Ph.D. students and are also available to support students in purpose-driven ways throughout their studies.

University fellowships usually begin in August with the start of the new academic year. Twelve-month awards run from August through July; ten-month awards run from August through May.
