The Mitchell Scholarships recognize outstanding academic distinction, leadership and service. The recipients will spend a year of graduate study at institutions of higher learning in Ireland and Northern Ireland. The program is named in honor of former U.S. Senator George Mitchell’s contributions to the Northern Ireland peace process.

Berlin, a resident of Arroyo Grande, California, will study culture and colonialism at the National University of Ireland, Galway. He graduated from Princeton with an A.B. in Spanish and Portuguese languages and cultures, and certificates in creative writing, Latin American studies and theater.

Berlin was Princeton University’s 2018 valedictorian, and was awarded the George B. Wood Legacy Junior Prize in 2017, the Freshman First Honor Prize in 2015 and the Shapiro Prize for Academic Excellence in 2014-15.
