Princeton University reaffirms commitment to ensuring a Princeton education is affordable for every student

At their April meetings, the trustees of Princeton University reaffirmed the University’s commitment to affordability despite the economic challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic. “Given the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting economic challenges, we expect that more of our students will need financial aid and that many students will need additional aid. We are committed to increasing the University’s financial aid budget to meet these needs so a Princeton education remains affordable for all students,” said Provost Deborah Prentice, the University’s chief budget officer and chair of the student-faculty-staff Priorities Committee that makes budget recommendations to the trustees.
