Other Types of Aid

On this page you can find information about less common forms of financial aid. 

The AmeriCorps program provides a Segal AmeriCorps Education Award of up to $7,395 for full-time members who complete their service to pay for college, graduate school, or to pay back qualified educational loans.

Students on financial aid who receive an Americorps Education Award will see the student contribution reduced, then the self-help (loans and work study) reduced before any University grant funds are reduced. In order to make the most of the service award, it is to the benefit of the student to understand the self-help levels in his or her financial aid package before requesting the AmeriCorps contribution. Please note, AmeriCorps awards will not reduce the calculated family contribution in any circumstance.

Duke University provides three ROTC programs for interested students, all of which offer the possibility of financial aid in the form of scholarships and other aid options. For more information on each program, including how to become a Reserve Officer candidate, please follow the links provided below.

Undocumented students are eligible to receive need-based aid from Duke and are admitted without regard to financial need. In addition to Duke's support, students looking for additional information and resources may also want to consider the websites below:
