Kahn ’22 Elected to Phi Beta Kappa

May 20, 2022

NES senior concentrator Ethan Kahn has been elected to Phi Beta Kappa. Kahn previously was a recipient of the 2018-2019 Shapiro Prize for Academic Excellence and named a 2022 Scholars in the Nation’s Service Initiative graduate scholar. The Phi Beta Kappa Society, founded in 1776 and the oldest of all national honorary scholastic societies, has a chapter at Princeton. Election to this chapter is based on scholastic standing and is open to candidates for the A.B. and B.S.E. degrees in their senior year. The chapter generally includes in its membership the highest-ranking tenth of each graduating class. A small group is elected in the fall of the senior year based on their academic record in the first three years; a larger group is elected at the end of the senior year and is inducted at a ceremony on Class Day.
