Funding

Every Princeton Engineering Ph.D. student receives full funding. In addition to a stipend, Ph.D. students are guaranteed a first-year fellowship from the University. M.S.E. students may receive teaching and/or research assistantships; see departmental websites for details. This level of support continues throughout the program, assuming progress is satisfactory.

The M.Eng. program is not funded by the University. Students should seek funding from other sources such as employers or government/private grants, or apply for financial aid through the Princeton University Graduate School Office.

Students are strongly encouraged to apply for distinguished national fellowships from organizations such as the National Science Foundation, the Department of Defense, the National AeronauticsĀ and Space Administration and the National Institutes of Health.

Students may live in University or off-campus housing. The University provides housing for more than 70 percent of the graduate student population. More information on funding and housing is available from the Graduate School Office.
