The financial aid budget for all juniors and seniors includes an increased board allowance. If you join an eating club, this higher board allowance should make it easier to afford a club meal plan.
Here’s how it works:
If you receive financial aid, your grant aid will be credited to your Princeton bill, reducing the amount you owe the University for tuition, room, and other fees. If you join a club, you will likely see no board charge from Princeton on your student bill. Because your University bill is likely to be lower that it was for the sophomore year, it should be easier for you or your family to afford an eating club.
