Home-Grown Leaders

BN Scholars at work in Marion, S.C.

Of the thousands of students who apply each year to Duke University, only a select few are tapped as Benjamin N. Duke Scholars.

They have stellar academic backgrounds. Exemplary records of community service and leadership. And they’re all from the Carolinas.

Established by The Duke Endowment in 1985 with a $10 million grant, the scholarship is designed to help Duke University develop the next generation of home-grown leaders. Read more of this article from The Duke Endowment.




Choosing to come to Duke and be a B.N. Duke Scholar had everything to do with choosing the corner where the people would support us the most zealously, where we could explode in pursuit of our passions, and where opportunities were not scarce. Stesha Doku Charlotte, NC
