Merit scholarships have been awarded at Duke University since its inception, and have enabled hundreds of deserving students to attend both Trinity College of Arts and Sciences, and the Pratt School of Engineering.  The depth and breadth of experiences our alumni have is astonishing, and they actively give back to the current scholars through advice, mentorship, and programming with OUSF.  From astrophysicists to novelists, physicians to professors of all kinds, Duke's merit scholar alumni are changing the world for the better.

"Though the scholarship may only last for four years, its impact will last far beyond."
