Pauline Yeung, a Princeton University senior in the Woodrow Wilson School and co-chair of LAPA's undergraduate forum, has received the 2008 Daniel M. Sachs Class of 1960 Graduating Scholarship. The award is one of the highest honors given to Princeton University undergraduates. It was established to provide a senior with the opportunity to study, work or travel abroad after graduation. Yeung's award will fund her tuition and living expenses at Worcester College at the University of Oxford, where she plans to pursue a master's degree in global governance.
Pauline is an A.B. candidate in the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, where she has explored her academic interests in international relations, transnational legal processes, and the rise and fall of great powers as well as global film, art and culture. At Oxford she plans to continue her work in global legal governance and transnational constitutionalism, while also developing her newer research interests in financial and economic governance, looking at the global consolidation of stock exchanges, the rise of sovereign wealth funds, the regulation of private equity, and the trade and monetary regulation of emerging markets in the world economy.
