Two area high school seniors were awarded the Angier B. Duke Memorial Scholarship to pursue their undergraduate studies at Duke University.
A total of 12 students earned the scholarship, which covers tuition and other school costs for four years of undergraduate education. The scholarship also funds six weeks of summer study at the University of Oxford and offers $5,000 to each scholar to facilitate independent research and educational enrichment.
The awards stem from the Angier B. Duke Memorial, which Duke University co-founder Benjamin Newton Duke established in 1925 in memory of his son, Angier Buchanan Duke.
