Alumni Endowed Scholars Program
In 1979, the Duke Alumni Association (DAA) established The Alumni Endowed Undergraduate Scholarship to recognize the academic and personal achievements of children or grandchildren of Duke alumni who are accepted for undergraduate admission to Duke University and demonstrate some financial need. The Alumni Endowed Undergraduate Scholarship is awarded on the basis of academic achievement, leadership performance, and meritorious activity outside the classroom.
Alumni Scholars are exceptional students with strong family connections to Duke who have demonstrated academic excellence as high school students.
Alumni Scholars are intellectual leaders with a love of learning seeking to engage fully in the rigors of a Duke education.
