The Christopher J. Duckenfield Scholars Program was established by his family and friends to honor his memory. Dr. Duckenfield, at Clemson University for 26 years, last served as Clemson's Vice Provost for Computing and Information Technology. Fittingly enough, he was also an alumnus of St. Peter's College, Oxford.
The Duckenfield Scholars Program is designed to identify and enable one or two members of the Honors College, who demonstrate extraordinary talent, motivation, commitment, and ability to attend St. Peter's Summer School at Magdalen College, Oxford University, each summer. The five-week summer school program immerses students in an unparalleled and challenging educational experience provided by Oxford professors from St. Peter’s College in one of three areas: Environmental Studies, English, or Medieval Studies.
Students will also have multiple experiences to appreciate another culture and broaden their global perspectives.
See the Duckenfield Scholars Program website for additional details.
