Grants and Prizes

Each year, the Friends of the Princeton University Library offer short-term Library Research Grants to promote scholarly use of the research collections. 

These Library Research Grants, which have a value of up to $4,000 plus transportation costs, are meant to help defray expenses incurred in traveling to and residing in Princeton during the tenure of the grant. The length of the grant will depend on the applicant’s research proposal, but is ordinarily between two and four weeks. Library Research Grants can be used from May of the year they are awarded to the following June.

The application process for the 2022-2023 academic year is open from October 11, 2021. The deadline is January 14, 2022. Awardees will be notified in April 2022. Research can take place between May 2022 and June 2023.
