101: is a non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to helping Princeton High School graduates in need of financial assistance for college.
Founded by a school secretary in 1970 and operating as the Princeton Regional Scholarship Foundation (“PRSF”) until 2008, when our current logo and name were adopted, 101: has provided in excess of $1 million in aid to PHS seniors over the last four decades.
Our scholarships are entirely need-based, and are aimed at reducing the gap between the skyrocketing cost of attending college and students’ resources from family savings and financial aid packages.
Throughout the school year, money is raised via a direct mail campaign and a number of local events which fund our annual awards. These are given out each June to qualifying students who have applied in the spring through the PHS Guidance Office.
Our recipients come from a wide range of backgrounds and, this past year, moved on to pursue higher education at institutions such as Bowdoin, Rutgers, School of the Visual Arts (N.Y.), Tulane, University of New Mexico, and Mercer County Community College.
