Four Princeton seniors and one alumnus have been selected to continue their studies next year as recipients of the Rhodes and Sachs scholarships.
The Rhodes scholars are Sarah Yerima ’15 of Los Angeles, a sociology major who will pursue a master of philosophy degree in politics at Oxford next fall; Rachel Skokowski ’15 of Palo Alto, Calif., who is majoring in French and Italian, and plans to study for a master of philosophy degree in modern languages at Oxford; and Joseph Barrett ’14 of Port Washington, N.Y., who majored in history and earned a certificate in South Asian studies. Barrett also will attend Oxford, where he will work toward a master of philosophy degree in economic and social history.
The Sachs Scholarship, given to Princeton students and named for Daniel Sachs ’60, was awarded to William Beacom ’15 and Brett Diehl ’15. Beacom, from Calgary, Alberta, is majoring in the Woodrow Wilson School. He will spend a year in five Asian countries studying Chinese influence on authoritarian regimes. Diehl, a history major from Charlottesville, Va., plans to complete two master’s degrees at Oxford — in economic and social history and in criminology and criminal justice.
