The Alumni Endowed Scholarship Program

Duke Chapel


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.

Marley Dooling and Enrichment Experience

Marley used her enrichment funding to work with the Potomac-Chesapeake Dolphin Project.  During the summer of 2022, Marley worked with scientists researching disease transmission and social behavior in bottle nosed dolphins in the Chesapeake Bay.  She also collected data that she will use in a senior honors thesis on the effects of salinity and skin lesions in these dolphins. 


Alumni Endowed Scholarship Leaders

The Alumni Scholars Program is fortunate to be co-lead by Carole LeVine, Senior Director of the Alumni Admissions Program, and Dr. Stephen Craig, William T. Miller Distinguished Professor of Chemistry and Director of the NSF Center for the Chemistry of Molecularly Optimized Networks.
