Princeton Research Day Call for Submissions

April 10, 2024

Dear colleagues:

I am reaching out to you on behalf of Princeton Research Day as we’d greatly appreciate your help in spreading the word about PRD to undergraduate student researchers. 

PRD is entering its ninth year, and it is a campus-wide celebration of research and creative work, showcasing the knowledge of undergraduates through postdocs. Presenters submit 3-minute videos on their work in non-specialist language, developing the public engagement skills. Presenters might focus on research conducted in a course, a performance developed with a student group or class, or findings from their independent work. We then invite presenters and the Princeton community to our in-person event on May 9th, which includes a poster and exhibit showcase, reception, and awards celebration. This event is also open to the public. 

We would be very grateful if you could amplify news about PRD to undergraduate researchers that have been a part of (or will be a part of!) your programs. Below, we have language that could be shared via email. 

Princeton Research Day is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for early career scholars and artists to share their story, passion, discovery, or innovation with a broad, public audience. Submit now to connect with peers, mentors, and the public AND to have your work considered for prizes up to $1500! 

What can I present?

All undergraduates are eligible to present their completed or in-progress research or creative work at PRD. You are welcome to adapt any research or creative project you have developed whether you are in your first or final semester. 

How do I submit?


Email any questions you may have to [email protected]!

Please let us know if you have any questions, and of course we invite you to attend PRD on May 9th as well.

With gratitude, 

Caitlin Larracey, Assistant Director, Office of Undergraduate Research
