Grants & Fellowships

Friends of the Princeton University Library Research Grants

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and restrictions on visits to the Princeton University campus, the Friends of the Princeton University Library have made the difficult decision to suspend the Research Grants Program  for the 2021-2022 period. We invite you to check in Fall 2021 for updated information. In the meantime, if you have questions, please direct them to pulgrant@princeton.edu. We appreciate your interest in the Research Grants Program.
