The Trinity Scholars Program

 

Duke's alumni in the Carolinas have generously funded the Trinity Scholarships to honor Duke's origins as Trinity College in Randolph County, North Carolina. We award them on a rotating basis to attract some of the most gifted students residing within specific geographic areas of the Carolinas.

Benefits and Opportunities

Full Scholarship to Duke University

The Trinity Scholars Program provides eight semesters of full tuition, room and board at Duke University. Scholars also have access to generous enrichment funding for domestic and international summer experiences, including opportunities for independent research both in the summer and during the academic year.

Academic Community

In addition to monetary support, Trinity Scholars will be a part of a cohort of students with a faculty director, a program coordinator, and additional mentoring support from the Office of Undergraduate Scholars and Fellows. All Trinity Scholars will be part of a scholar community, and will engage with faculty mentors, program coordinators, guest speakers, and have the occasional field trip.

Enrichment Experiences

After completion of the first year, Trinity Scholars may apply for up to $6,300 to support a variety of educational enrichment activities: from working at a laboratory at Duke University or elsewhere, to pursuing an internship in the private or government sector, to engaging in service work or independent research. With the help of the Trinity Scholarship faculty director, the graduate assistant, and faculty mentors or advisors, Trinity Scholars will be supported in thinking creatively and planning wisely for these enrichment opportunities.
