- Official transcripts of your grades

- For students whose native language is not English and who have not received their undergraduate education at a U.S. college or university: official TOEFL exam scores from ETS
Applicants are required to take the GRE examination from ETS and to request that scores be sent directly to Princeton. This test can be taken all over the world. Almost all applicants submit scores for the GRE General Test. Many applicants also submit scores for one of the Science Subject Tests.
Requests for application fee waivers will be considered for U.S. citizens or permanent residents on the basis of significant financial hardship, or if you have participated or are currently participating in one of the several eligible programs (see Fee Waivers
). Proof of program participation will need to be uploaded along with your application. The fee waiver option is accessible through the payment section of the admission application. If you choose that option, the fee waiver application will become part of your admission application and must be submitted by the application deadline of November 27, 2017. Applicants will be notified of a fee waiver decision within one week after the applications are submitted. Please email gs[at]princeton[dot]edu
with any questions.
All admitted students receive full financial support for the duration of their Ph.D., including tuition, a competitive stipend, and health benefits. This support is made possible through a combination of funds from Princeton University, federal grants to PNI, generous private donations, and grants to faculty members.
