The Trinity Scholarships were established in 1984 through the generosity of distinguished Duke alumni to honor Duke¹s origins as Trinity College in Randolph County, North Carolina. These scholarships are awarded on a rotating basis to some of the most gifted students residing within specific geographic areas of North Carolina. Duke has created the Trinity Scholarships with the support of its North Carolinian alumni to attract the finest students from its home state.
The award covers full tuition, fees, room & board, and a small stipend for books. It is subject to renewal for the scholar's four years of undergraduate study. Additionally, Trinity Scholars are offered up to $6,600 for research or other educational enrichment programs.
