Benjamin S., 2016 Freedom HS Valedictorian, and Benjamin N. Duke Scholar

Follow Benjamin on his blog:

Benjamin N. Duke scholars, funded by The Duke Endowment, receive full support for four years at Duke University and two summers of community engagement—one in the Carolinas and one abroad. In addition to monetary support, dedicated faculty and staff help the scholars reach new academic heights and tackle real world problems with innovative, interdisciplinary, compassionate, and sustainable approaches. B.N. Duke scholars emerge from their experience at Duke as leaders, problem solvers, and members of an extensive community that spreads across the Carolinas and beyond.

Through the summer programs and other community engagement projects they complete over the course of their academic careers, BN Duke Scholars develop an understanding of what it means to partner with people rather than work for people; they learn to listen first and then speak; they ground themselves locally in the Carolinas even as they engage communities in the broader world.
