Princeton University alumni Willow Dalehite of the Class of 2022 and Bennett Weissenbach of the Class of 2020 will head to the University of Cambridge in the fall as recipients of Gates Cambridge Scholarships. Dalehite and Weissenbach are among 23 U.S. winners of the scholarship. Dalehite, who concentrated in EEB at Princeton, will pursue a Ph.D. in zoology at Cambridge. Her Princeton work focused on birds — for her senior thesis, she recorded and analyzed wren duets, and for a separate project she investigated the parenting habits of the greater ani — but at Cambridge she plans to turn her attention to parenting in smaller creatures: burying beetles.
