All residents of North and South Carolina who apply and are accepted for undergraduate admission to Duke University are automatically considered for the award. There is no separate application and no financial need component. Finalists for the scholarship are notified by mid-March.
All of the merit scholarships that Duke offers are housed under the umbrella of the Office of Undergraduate Scholars and Fellows (OUSF). Visit their website to learn more about all of the scholarships we have to offer.
If you are hesitant to apply to Duke because of the cost, please reconsider. In addition to the B. N. Duke Scholars Program and other merit scholarships, Duke University has recently expanded need-based financial aid.
