Duke's Inaugural Class of A. James Clark Scholars Graduate With Rave Reviews

The inaugural class of A. James Clark Scholars at Duke graduated with the Class of 2022. Pioneering the ambitious scholarship program at Duke, these 10 bright and promising graduates helped kick off the curriculum focused on leadership, service, and business and entrepreneurship.

Created in 2018 with a $15 million investment from the A. James & Alice B. Clark Foundation, the Clark Scholars Program is the foundation's engineering education program. Clark Scholars at Duke University receive up to $10,000 per year to follow their passion for making an impact through innovation. Ten students are chosen from each entering class. Eligible applicants are incoming first-year students at Duke who qualify for need-based financial aid and are interested in founding new ventures at the intersection of business and engineering.

The program mirrors the vision and values of construction-industry leader A. James Clark, with its focuses on engineering, business, leadership and community service.
