Undergraduate Funding Opportunities

**Due to COVID-19, all University-sponsored international travel is prohibited, and non-essential University-sponsored domestic travel should be postponed or canceled until further notice. Stay tuned to the latest University guidance.**

As emerging scholars and professionals, Princeton undergraduates enjoy unique opportunities to become global citizens. For those interested in examining Latin America and the Caribbean, PLAS funding serves as a foundation and as a springboard.

Competitive grants support compelling student work and initiatives, whether it’s studying Latin America up close or bringing writers like Junot Diaz to Princeton. Interested students are encouraged to apply for support via the Student Activities Funding Engine (SAFE).
