While the financial aid award considers all aspects of the student’s budget, the total amount of the award is first applied to tuition and then to any other Princeton fees (room, board, health plan, activity fee, etc.) on your student account. For most juniors and seniors receiving financial aid, the grant awarded for eating clubs will reduce the amount owed to the University, freeing up the parental contribution to go toward eating club costs directly. There will be no excess grant funds to transfer to the club. For students with high financial need, there may be available grant funds to transfer to the club.
