Sachs Scholarship awarded to Princeton seniors Kang, Tahir; Oxford student Duffus

Jan. 20, 2021

Princeton seniors Jimin Kang and Aisha Tahir, and University of Oxford student Hannah Duffus have been named recipients of the Daniel M. Sachs Class of 1960 Graduating Scholarship, one of Princeton University’s highest awards.

Kang was named a Sachs Scholar at Oxford’s Worcester College; Tahir, a Sachs Global Scholar; and Duffus, a Sachs Scholar at Princeton.

The Sachs Scholarship is intended to broaden the global experience of its recipients by providing them with the opportunity to study, work or travel abroad after graduation. It was established by classmates and friends of Daniel Sachs, a distinguished Princeton student athlete in the Class of 1960, who attended Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar. Sachs died of cancer at age 28 in 1967. The award is given to those who best exemplify Sachs’ character, intelligence and commitment, and whose scholarship is most likely to benefit the public.
