Class of 2025
Reginaldo Howard Scholar

Hometown: Goffstown, New Hampshire

Major: Psychology
Minor: Political Science

Hobbies: I am passionate about advocacy and activism. Much of my research with Duke’s Identity and Diversity Psychology Lab and the Wilson Center for Science and Justice at Duke Law addresses inequality within criminal justice and mental health institutions. Additionally, I enjoy working with the youth and mentoring with Big Brothers Big Sisters.

Why Duke?

When applying to college, I knew that I wanted to attend a university that made diversity and inclusion its cornerstone. Duke's commitment to social justice and education was one of the few reasons I believed the university was the best fit for me. The Reggie Scholarship further showed me just how important student activism is to Duke, as it honors students who have dedicated their time to advocacy and reform.

Duke has an immeasurable amount of opportunities for its students. During my final two years at Duke, I hope to immerse myself in new and diverse communities via clubs and student events. I am also excited to pursue classes that push me to develop new skills and gain unique perspectives. Lastly, I love the research I have been working on, and I am excited to gain more responsibilities and experience in the labs I work in.
