Duke Names Third Class of Nakayama Scholars

Five members of the Class of 2024 have been named to the third class of Nakayama Scholars.

The Nakayama Public Service Scholarship bolsters the university’s efforts to encourage students to use their Duke experience to engage with significant challenges facing communities around the world. The students represent multiple disciplines across Duke’s academic departments as well as a variety of future careers pursuits.

Juniors Nhu Bui, Grace Endrud, Jacob Hervey, Chloe Nguyen, and Ronit Sethi were chosen for their strong academic record, leadership experiences and demonstrated commitment to a career in public service.

“Each year, we set out to find some of the very best rising seniors who are ready to address and solve the problems faced by our communities. These five will be part of the solution in the coming years. Their applications and interviews blew the committee away, and we cannot wait to work with them next year as we help prepare them to launch after Duke,” said Chris Simmons, vice president for government relations and director of the Nakayama program.
