Why Duke?

In Duke classrooms, magic happens: students of different interests and majors gather in a desperate search of knowledge, ridding themselves of labels and restrictions, curious about one another and the world surrounding them. This, I realized, is a place I can confidently call home—and the Karsh International scholarship was its wide-open door.

As a Karsh Scholar, I will have the chance to nurture my intellectual curiosity all while being part of an inquiring community that welcomes diversity. In global dialogue and far-reaching connections, I am certain I will find family.
