Princeton Research Day

To keep everyone safe and support social distancing, Princeton Research Day will not be held in person this year. We are exploring other possibilities with input from the campus community, and expect to announce those decisions here by early April.

Princeton Research Day is an annual one-day celebratory event to bring researchers together with the general public and the broader Princeton community. The presentations showcase the diversity of research projects by undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs and other early career scholars. Learn more about Princeton Research Day.
