Princeton's Martin A. Dale '53 Summer Awards for Sophomores (various)

Nov. 15, 2022

The Martin A. Dale '53 Summer Awards provide financial support to enable a small number of Princeton University sophomores to pursue worthy projects that provide important opportunities for personal growth, foster independence, creativity, and leadership skills, and broaden or deepen some area of special interest. It is required that the project will take a minimum of eight weeks of the summer; most projects take ten weeks.

 Past projects have included:

  • Special programs or projects in the creative arts
  • Community service projects
  • Programs of study that DON'T satisfy academic requirements at Princeton or independent study projects
  • Exploration designed to fulfill a goal

Proposals for participation in formal “structured” programs generally receive less consideration.  Note that Dale projects must comply with all guidelines for University-sponsored travel, as well as all local and national health and safety guidelines.
