Once per semester, the Center for Digital Humanities invites proposals from members of the Princeton faculty, graduate students, staff and post-doctoral fellows for Seed Grants to support individual or collaborative research projects.
Seed Grant award is up to $1,000
The Center for the Study of Democratic Politics (CSDP) invites CSDP affiliated graduate students to apply or research funding to support projects relevant to democratic politics. There is no formal grant maximum, but the overall pool of grant money is limited and more economical proposals of similar quality will receive preference.
The Dean for Research hosts the Research Funding Gateway, a unified research funding portal containing announcements of funding opportunities from internal Princeton sources, corporations, foundations, nonprofit organizations, and highlighted federal calls.
The National Science Foundations (NSF) provides a list of programs that offer either direct (i.e., from NSF) or indirect (i.e., from an awardee institution) funding for graduate students. One direct opportunity is the Graduate Research Fellowship Program.
The Graduate School provides a useful overview of external funding resources along with Princeton's user-friendly, web-based system called Pivot. This services aids faculty, staff, and students in matching research interests to potential external funding sources and in promoting collaborations with colleagues.
Time-Sharing Experiments for the Social Sciences (TESS) provides opportunities for faculty members, postdoctoral fellows, or graduate students of any social science or social science-related department anywhere in the world. Appropriate for those conducting survey research, the awarded funds grant access to the AmeriSpeak Panel surveys.
