Beginning in the fall 2023 semester, Duke University will provide full tuition grants for undergraduates admitted to Duke from North Carolina and South Carolina whose family incomes are $150,000 or less.

For Duke students who are residents of the Carolinas with family incomes of $65,000 or less, Duke will provide full tuition grants, plus financial assistance for housing, meals and some course materials or other campus expenses, without the need for student loans.

“This additional financial support for undergraduates reflects Duke’s commitment to our students from the Carolinas,” President Vincent Price said. “By providing even more equitable access to a Duke education, and ensuring students have the resources they need to truly thrive while here at Duke, we will also make our campus community stronger.”

Duke has more undergraduate students from North Carolina than from any other state. In the 2022–23 academic year, 1,131 North Carolina residents were enrolled as undergraduates, representing 16 percent of the undergraduate student body. More than half attended public high schools. A further 160 are from South Carolina.
