Seniors Flannery Cunningham and Jake Nebel have been awarded the MITCHELL and MARSHALL SCHOLARSHIPS, respectively, to pursue postgraduate study. No Princeton seniors received the Rhodes Scholarship for 2013, though 15 students were finalists. Last year, four Princetonians were awarded the Rhodes; three received it for 2011.
Cunningham, a music major receiving a certificate in creative writing, will use the Mitchell Scholarship to pursue a master’s degree in music composition at University College Cork in Ireland. As a recipient of the University’s Martin Dale Fellowship in 2011, Cunningham wrote her first oratorio, which featured a chamber choir, chamber orchestra, and vocal soloists. She is one of 12 recipients of the scholarship nationwide.
Nebel, one of 34 American recipients of the Marshall Scholarship, plans to pursue a master’s degree in philosophy at Oxford University. A philosophy major with a certificate in Values and Public Life, Nebel is a member of Phi Beta Kappa, was awarded the Shapiro Prize for Academic Excellence in 2010 and 2011, and has published two papers as an undergraduate.
Kaitlin Stouffer ’13 and Stephanie Tam ’13 have been awarded the SACHS SCHOLARSHIP, a Princeton honor named for Daniel Sachs ’60. Stouffer, a computer science major, will work for a year in South Africa, contributing to research on drug-resistant tuberculosis by using her computer-science skills to develop new ways to analyze genetic data. Tam, an English major, will spend two years at Oxford University pursuing postgraduate degrees in postcolonial and world literatures and conducting research on the issue of sex trafficking. The Sachs Scholarship was established in 1970 to provide a senior with the opportunity to study, work, or travel abroad after graduation.
