Are you an incoming freshman or current student? Are you a serious athlete that misses being part of a competitive sports program? We’re looking for athletes that relish a challenge. If you fit the bill, then Princeton Rugby might be for you.

Financial Aid

Gaining admission to one of the the finest undergraduate universities in the world is not easy, but if you have what it takes to get in, rest assured that you (and your parents) will be able to afford Princeton. Whether you call it a “scholarship” or a “financial aid grant,” the average grant to students in the Class of 2021 is $50,600 according to the Admissions Office, which means the average grant covers more than 100% of the cost of tuition. That makes the average “net cost” of going to Princeton just $13,000. Over 60% of students receive financial aid in some amount, and 82% of recent seniors graduated debt-free (while the average debt for US college graduates overall exceeds $32,000). For the class of 2015, the average student loan balance at graduation was just $6,600 — lowest among U.S. universities. MONEY magazine ranked Princeton the #1 “best value” as recently as August 2016, saying it is “less expensive than any other Ivy League schools…[and often] cheaper than many public colleges as well.” For more information, go to Princeton University Costs and Financial Aid.

Princeton’s rugby program is fully funded by its own endowment which is overseen by a Board of former players and current officers of the Club.

If you want to compete with the very best in all fields of endeavors, and be part of the Princeton graduate community for life, consider applying to Princeton (early if that makes sense to you, as admissions rates are roughly 3 times higher with early admissions).
