The A.B. Duke Scholarship Program provides more than a merit-based financial award. It offers support for the intellectually adventurous and curious. In addition to receiving financial awards covering full tuition, room and board, and all mandatory fees, A. B. Duke Scholars are encouraged to develop their own curricula and program-funded research projects. The A.B. Duke Scholars Program provides eight semesters of full tuition, room and board, and mandatory fees to Duke University. Scholars also have access to generous funding for domestic and international summer experiences. Every applicant to Duke University is considered for 8 out of the 9 merit scholarships offered at Duke University.

Scholarship Requirements:

  • All applicants to Duke who demonstrate exceptional promise, intellectual hunger, and an inquisitive spark may be considered candidates for the A.B. Duke Scholarship.
