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 Progam is designed to identify and enable one or two members of the Calhoun 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 progam has been established for students who desire to experience another culture and to broaden their global perspective.
Application to the program is open to currently enrolled Calhoun Honors College students who have been at Clemson for at least one full year at the time of their application. Priority will be given to those who have a least one year remaining before graduation.
Applications must be submitted no later than Friday, November 14, 2014. Late and/or hand written applications will not be accepted.
