Class of 2015 history concentrator Brett Diehl has been named a Knight-Hennessy Scholar to pursue graduate studies at Stanford University

Diehl is among 49 students from around the world selected as the inaugural cohort of Knight-Hennessy Scholars. The recipients will receive full funding to pursue any graduate degree at Stanford, including master’s and doctoral programs. Diehl plans to earn a J.D. from Stanford Law School and Joseph will earn his M.D. from Stanford University School of Medicine.

Diehl graduated from Princeton with a degree in history and certificates in Spanish language and culture and Latin American studies. He earned his master’s degree in economic and social history from the University of Oxford through Princeton’s Daniel M. Sachs Class of 1960 Graduating Scholarship. He is currently working on Ann Kirkpatrick’s campaign for Congress based in Tucson, Arizona. 

Diehl said a series of “physical and intellectual journeys” during his time at Princeton and Oxford shaped his desire to “help dismantle systemic disadvantage,” which he hopes to do by earning his law degree.
