    Duke University Scholarships

    Duke University, located in Durham, North Carolina is an elite research university that is considered to be one of the top institutions in the world. While many people probably know Duke from their storied basketball team, the University has variety of strong academic programs across the Trinity College of Arts and Sciences and the Pratt School of Engineering. Unlike some of the other elite institutions (such as the Ivy League schools), Duke University scholarships include both need-based and merit-based awards to incoming students.

    Duke Merit scholarships

    Duke’s merit scholarships simply require a candidate to submit their application–no other forms are needed (students also do not need to submit the financial aid documents to be considered for merit scholarships). The one exception to this is the Robertson Scholarship which is awarded to students with a strong track record of leadership. Other Duke University scholarships include:

    Need-based scholarships 

    Duke is one of the few colleges in the country to be both need-blind in admissions (meaning that they do not take financial need into account when making admissions decisions) and meet 100% of a student’s demonstrated financial need. In order to apply for need-based financial aid, students must submit both the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the CSS Profile.

    Next Steps:
