Students earn scholarships for study in England

Three Princeton seniors have been awarded scholarships for study in England next year. They are: Natalie Deffenbaugh, who will receive the Daniel Sachs Class of 1960 Memorial Scholarship; Paul Hackwell, who will receive the Keasbey Scholarship; and Ann Kelly, who will receive one of the first Gates Cambridge Scholarships.

Deffenbaugh will graduate from Princeton in June with a bachelor's degree in physics and a certificate in medieval studies. The Sachs Scholarship will allow her to study for a bachelor of arts degree in philosophy, politics and economics at Worcester College, Oxford University. In particular, she plans to study the mechanisms of peace keeping and diplomacy. She eventually would like to work at the State Department or an independent nongovernmental organization.

Hackwell, the Keasbey Scholarship recipient, intends to study for an M.Phil. in English medieval studies from 1100 to 1500 at Oxford University. He will receive a bachelor's degree in English literature from Princeton in June with a certificate in financial economics. He studied English literature and macroeconomic theory at University College London in the fall of 2000 through a Princeton study abroad program.

Kelly plans to use the Gates scholarship to earn a doctoral degree in social anthropology at Cambridge University. She hopes to pursue a career that combines her research and public policy interests in medical anthropology, the history of medicine and bioethics. Kelly will receive a bachelor's degree in anthropology in June with certificates in creative writing and European studies.
