The scholarship was named in honor and memory of Professor Bruce G. Duke who taught ceramics and art at San Joaquin Delta College for 39-1/2 years. At ninety-three years old Bruce was still actively committed to his work in ceramics and jewelry metal. He died in 2016.
Annually a scholarship is given to a deserving ceramic student from San Joaquin Delta College or Modesto Junion College, who wants to continue their studies in upper division classes at another college/university.
Applications for this annual scholarship will be mailed to the ceramic arts departments of
San Joaquin Delta College and Modesto Junior College in February.
