Historical Note

The Angier B. Duke Memorial, Inc. was established in 1925 by Ben N. Duke to honor his son, Angier Buchanan Duke (1884-1923). The Memorial is a nonprofit membership corporation organized to develop scholarship and to promote and further the arts, sciences, and professions by establishing funding to assist students. Prior to the Second World War the Memorial focused primarily on assisting struggling students through the years of the Great Depression. In May 1946, several members of the Angier B. Duke Memorial, Inc. Board of Directors expressed concern over existing policy governing scholarship awards. These concerned members felt that student financial aid would take on new significance in the future when G.I Bill funding began to wane. The board formed a committee in 1946 to explore possible directions a new financial aid policy could take.

The new Scholarship Program shifted from need-based determination to considerations of academic merit and future professional potential. The Program "sought to attract young men and young women with the character, personality, intellectual integrity, vitality, and imagination to become leaders in their chosen fields" who could "digest and use the knowledge they acquired." The result, the Angier B. Duke Memorial Scholarship, became the premiere undergraduate award at Duke. In 1974, the Memorial initiated three new facets of the scholarship program: Summer Study at Oxford Program, the Self-Determined Educational Experience Program, and the Angier B. Duke In-Class Scholar Award.
