Awards will be given at Princeton Research Day Reception for best presentations. In keeping with the interdisciplinary spirit of this campus-wide event, presenters will be evaluated primarily on how effectively they communicate their research to an educated, non-specialist audience. Judges include freshman and sophomore students as well as faculty and staff members.
Consult the 2017 judging rubric for more information on how presentations are judged. The Busy Professional's Guide to Judging contains useful information on evaluating and scoring presentations to help judges prepare for Princeton Research Day.
See the Archive page for the 2016 winners.
All PRD attendees will be invited to vote for their favorite presentations using the Princeton Research Day 2017 Guidebook platform on the day of the event. Attendees can access this platform and cast their votes by downloading the app. The Princeton Choice Awards will be given to the presenters who received the highest and second-highest number of votes from across all presentation categories.
Award amounts range from $100 to $300. Award recipients will also receive a personalized award certificate signed by the University President, Provost, Dean of the College, Dean of the Faculty, Dean of the Graduate School and Dean for Research.
