Karsh International Scholarship Program
In honor of the exceptional contributions international scholars make to Duke University, the Karsh International Scholarship was founded in 2010 thanks to a generous donation from Martha L. and Bruce A. Karsh. Karsh International Scholars comprise an intellectually and civically engaged cohort of international students who promote interdisciplinary inquiry, academic research, and scholarship in the service of society. International applicants must have demonstrated financial need to be eligible for this scholarship. Our current cohort of scholars includes students from China, Croatia, El Salvador, England, Ethiopia, Germany, Ghana, Greece, India, Italy, Kenya, Lebanon, Malaysia, Morocco, New Zealand, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, South Korea, Spain, Vietnam, and Wales.
