Princeton Research Day is a celebration of the research, scholarly and creative work conducted by early-career researchers (undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs and other early-career non-faculty researchers) from across the campus in the arts and humanities, natural sciences, social sciences and engineering.

Princeton Research Day 2021 is entirely online this year to allow the greatest number of presenters to participate.

Presentations will take the form of 3-minute videos that the students create and submit.
