John J. Kennedy Prize

Formerly, the John J. Kennedy Prize was awarded annually for the best senior essay on Latin America. Named after a Notre Dame Political Science Department professor who did much to develop Latin American studies on this campus, the award carried a monetary prize and recognized the recipient’s high quality work at Notre Dame. A faculty committee reviewed the essays to determine the award recipients, and winners were recognized in the graduation program and during Senior Week ceremonies.
