Princeton senior Rafil Kroll-Zaidi has been named the recipient of the 2003 Daniel Sachs Class of 1960 Graduating Scholarship.
The award, one of the highest honors given to Princeton undergraduates, was established in 1970 to provide a senior with the opportunity to study, work or travel abroad after graduation. It will fund Kroll-Zaidi's tuition and living expenses for the next year as he pursues postgraduate study in photographic technique at Central St. Martin's College of Art and Design in London and an internship in motion picture production in India.
Kroll-Zaidi has been interested in photography and film for several years. He has served as an editor and a photographer for The Nassau Weekly, a student-run publication, and he has won several awards for his photography, including first prize in the 2000 Hemispheres magazine competition. A comparative literature major, he is writing his senior thesis on questions of narrative in European art films.
