About the Scholarship:

The year 1746 marks the establishment of Princeton University, which places it as the fourth-oldest institution of higher education in the United States. The university is a leader in research and education, providing instruction at the undergraduate and graduate levels in the fields of engineering, the social sciences, the natural sciences, and the humanities. In addition to that, it offers a variety of degrees at the professional level. The university’s Department of Economics, Computer Hardware Engineering, and Public Policy Analysis are just few of the most sought-after academic programs it provides. The university has been listed among the top 10 educational institutions in the world, on a constant basis, for many years. It has been ranked as the top undergraduate teaching university in the world for the academic years 2015-2016, 2017-2018, and 2019 respectively.


In addition, undergraduate students at Princeton are expected to write a thesis, and students in certain engineering fields are also required to complete an independent project. These requirements are what set Princeton’s academic program apart from that of other universities. The university provides residential housing for all of its undergraduate students throughout all four years of their education; as a result, 98 percent of students choose to live on campus during their time at the university.

Princeton University is a private educational institution that has locations in Plainsboro and South Brunswick in the state of New York, United States of America. The campuses, which are spread out across a total of 500 acres of property, are often regarded as some of the most beautiful sites in New York. There are roughly 180 buildings there, among which are 10 libraries. Students attending residential institutions have access to a wide variety of extracurricular options in addition to those offered in the classroom. It provides a variety of social, cultural, and academic programs, some of which include singing and writing for literary publications, among other activities. Students in New York City have a wonderful time because the city is so well-known for its vibrancy and its diverse cultural offerings. Both of the campuses are located in close proximity to places that supply all of the essentials, such as restaurants, gyms, medical stores, and shops. Some of the highly ranked graduate programs that fall under Princeton’s umbrella are the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and the School of Engineering and Applied Science.


Michelle Obama, who served as the former First Lady of the United States, David Mathews, who served as a civil leader, Oliver Ellsworth, who served as the former Chief Justice of the United States, Jeff Bezos, who served as the founder and CEO of Amazon, Pete Conrad, who served as the astronaut and commander of Apollo 12, and Eric Schmidt, who serves as the chairman of Google are all notable alumni of Princeton University. In addition to members of the United States Congress and the Cabinet of the United States, Princeton alumni include three Secretaries of Defense and eight Secretaries of State. As of the month of March in the year 2020, Princeton University may claim a connection to 68 Nobel Prize winners, 15 Fields Medalists, and 14 Turing Award winners through its alumni, faculty members, and researchers.
