Scholarship Benefits

Each B.N. Duke and Trinity scholarship provides funds for four years of full tuition and summer stipends for study, work or travel. Each scholar receives two summer experiences that allow scholars to enhance their personal and academic development, to serve communities in North and South Carolina (the Carolina Summer of Service), and to expand their knowledge and awareness of other cultures and communities (the International Summer). Each scholarship is currently valued at over $130,000 for the B.N. Duke program, and over $150,000 for the Trinity program (Trinity Scholars also receive funds for room and board as well as funds for an optional third summer experience).

Program staff and faculty work closely with the scholars to achieve their academic and personal goals while attending Duke University. In addition to mentoring the scholars through the school year, the staff and faculty provide resources and advice to each student as they design individual summer enrichment experiences. Each Trinity Scholar is also linked with the donor(s) responsible for his or her specific scholarship, providing the opportunity to develop unique mentor relationships with these alumni.
