Young Alumna Is First Duke Winner of Eisenhower Global Scholarship

Duke alumna Swathi Ramprasad has been named one of four Eisenhower Global Scholars for the next academic year. Ramprasad, from San Jose, California, graduated from Duke in May 2021 with a double major in Computer Science and Public Policy. She is the first Duke student to win this award.

The award provides full funding for Ramprasad to attend the University of Oxford’s Blavatnik School of Government to pursue a master’s degree in public policy.

Eisenhower Global Scholars are chosen based upon their strong record of academic achievement and community involvement, as well as their demonstrated leadership potential.  All Eisenhower Global Scholars must also have a concrete project proposal that their international studies will advance.
