The Alumni Endowed Scholarship Program
Established in 1979 by the Duke Alumni Association, the Alumni Endowed Scholarship is offered to students with outstanding academic achievement, who have strong family connections to Duke University, and demonstrated financial need. Alumni Scholars exhibit strong leadership potential and excel in the classroom and beyond. Together with peers in the Trinity Scholars Program, Alumni Scholars have access to mentoring from faculty, staff, and fellow scholars.
