Benjamin Duke

The program is named in honor of Benjamin N. Duke, a respected leader, businessman, and philanthropist.

B.N. Duke Scholars remember their North and South Carolina roots as they engage in local and global communities and aspire to become leaders at Duke and beyond. Academic excellence and community service are their trademarks.
