Princeton Research Day culminates with a celebratory public reception with music, food and beverages. All presenters, judges and attendees from the community are warmly invited and encouraged to attend. University leaders will present awards for the best presentations at the conclusion of the reception.

Impact award: This award recognizes a graduate student who clearly communicates the positive impact the research has on enriching or improving our culture, community or society. The award is issued by the Dean of the Graduate School Sarah-Jane Leslie and is for $500.

Judged awards: In keeping with the interdisciplinary spirit of this campus-wide event, presenters are evaluated primarily on how effectively they communicated their research to an educated, non-specialist audience. Judges include students, faculty and staff as well as members of the community.

Princeton Choice awards: Princeton Choice awards represent those presentations that received the most attendee votes through the Research Day program app.

Consult the 2018 judging rubric for more information on how presentations are judged. 

Award amounts range from $250 to $750. Award recipients will also receive a personalized award certificate. Participants cannot win more than one award.
