University of Notre Dame senior Prathm Juneja has been named to the United States Rhodes Scholar Class of 2020. Juneja, of Edison, New Jersey, is Notre Dame’s 20th Rhodes Scholar and the 14th from the College of Arts and Letters — including four in the past six years — and will commence his studies in Oxford in October.
Juneja is among 62 students — mostly juniors but also seniors in five-year degree programs — selected for the honor from a pool of 840 candidates from 346 colleges and universities nationwide.
This final talk in the 2018 Arts and Letters Saturday Scholar series provides new insight into whether, how, and with what impact women cast their ballots in the period immediately following suffrage.
The group will host a series of events between now and Election Day to educate, register and mobilize local voters.
NDVotes engaged more than 500 students with TurboVote during the 2017 calendar year, placing it within the top 10 among 104 college and university partners.
