Behrman Undergraduate Fellow Mengistie Awarded Sachs Scholarship

February 2, 2022

Senior Nathnael Mengistie was named a recipient of the Daniel M. Sachs Class of 1960 Graduating Scholarship, one of Princeton University’s highest awards.

Mengistie was named a Sachs Scholar at Oxford’s Worcester College. Fellow senior Sydney Hughes was named a Sachs Global Scholar, and University of Oxford student Elise Doumergue was named a Sachs Scholar at Princeton.

He is a member of the Behrman Undergraduate Society of Fellows, a group of juniors and seniors who are committed to the study of humanistic inquiry meet formally once a month during term to discuss and debate matters of common interest in the company of a few members of the faculty and distinguished guests.

Mengistie, of Frederick, Maryland, is concentrating in the School of Public and International Affairs (SPIA) and pursuing certificates in French and global health and health policy. He plans to use his Sachs Scholarship to pursue master’s degrees in international health and tropical medicine, and evidence-based social intervention and policy evaluation.
