Due to the generosity of Princeton’s alumni, parents, and other donors, the School of Engineering and Applied Science is able to offer numerous funding opportunities for faculty and students.
Funding Guide for Engineering Faculty
A general guide, particularly for new faculty, for how to go about funding your research
The School of Engineering and Applied Science offers numerous Innovation Research Grants to faculty for cutting-edge research in areas such as general engineering, health, environment, neuroscience, and data science.
Seed grants provide a faculty member, or a group of faculty members, with needed financial relief (e.g. summer support) to plan for and write a large, multidisciplinary center proposal or to develop collaboration with industry.
The School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) has a limited number of travel grants (up to $500/grant) available for enrolled SEAS graduate students who are: presenting a technical paper or poster at a professional society conference; attending a conference for educational purposes; or traveling for a research-related activity.
Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives
Seed funding is available for community-organized events or initiatives aimed at enhancing inclusion and broadening diversity among our community. Faculty, students, researchers, and staff are welcome to apply for support.
