How do I apply for merit scholarships?

Applicants are automatically considered for Duke merit scholarships by virtue of their admissions application; however, there are several merit scholarships that require that the recipient demonstrate financial need. To be considered for these scholarships, it is essential that you submit all of your required financial aid documents by the February 1 deadline. All applicants for admission are automatically considered for any available merit scholarship. To learn more about merit scholarships at Duke and other sources of non-need-based aid, please see Other Sources of Aid.
