What Does OPR Offer Graduate Students?

All students receive financial support, which fosters a non-competitive atmosphere.

Because OPR believes in training each student to be a professional, students are encouraged to participate and are given funding to attend the annual PAA meeting, as well as other conferences that are relevant to a student's research.

Each student is given an office space and a computer. OPR offers great technical support as well as a first-rate library.

Students interact regularly with faculty at the weekly seminar series. In addition, students have plenty of opportunities to do collaborative work with professors.

As for life outside of OPR, Princeton offers a safe, relaxed environment with easy access to Philadelphia and New York.
