The Angier B. Duke Memorial Scholarships were created to recognize young men and women who have demonstrated, 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. Duke and Sarah P. Duke to honor their son, Angier Buchanan Duke. The award covers full tuition and is subject to renewal for the scholar's four years of undergraduate study. In addition to full tuition, mandatory fees and room and board, A. B. Duke Scholars spend one summer studying in New College at Oxford University through the Duke in Oxford Study Abroad Program and are offered up to $5,000 for research or other educational enrichment programs.
