The Daniel M. Sachs Class of 1960 Graduating Scholarship commemorates Dan Sachs. Sachs was a distinguished student and a fine athlete who intended to enter politics. He died of cancer at the age of 28. Sach's friends and classmates instituted the scholarship to provide a senior with an opportunity to study, work, or travel abroad after graduation.
The scholarship's purpose is to enlarge the holder’s experience of the world. The scholarship is meant for students of broadly comparable intentions who are thinking of public affairs, whether politics, civil service, international affairs, journalism, and public education; or law, science, or medicine in the public interest.
At present, the Sachs Scholarship Fund makes three scholarship awards every year. The Sachs Worcester allows a Princeton senior to study for two years at Worcester College, Oxford. The Sachs Global funds a Princeton senior for one to two years anywhere outside the United States. The Sachs at Princeton enables a graduate of Worcester College to study for one year at the Princeton Graduate School.
