A.B. Duke Legacy

abdukeThe Angier B. Duke Memorial Scholarship Program is Duke University’s flagship merit scholarship for undergraduates. Since 1948, the program has recognized young men and women who demonstrate, through their excellent academic and personal records, outstanding promise of achievement in their chosen fields. These merit scholarships stem from the Angier B. Duke Memorial, Inc. established in 1925 by Benjamin N. and Sarah P. Duke to honor their son, Angier Buchanan Duke.

Over the years, the A.B. Duke Scholarship Program has helped Duke to matriculate the most academically ambitious applicants. These students are, by any measure, among the best in the nation – and the world. As a result, we now have a long history of looking to the future, by preparing the exceptional minds of today to meet emerging challenges.

Today, the program continues to attract the most intellectually talented, creative, and curious students to Duke. We are grateful to the Angier B. Duke Memorial, Inc. and The Duke Endowment, whose long-term investment in the Program has helped Duke rise to the top ranks of American universities.
