Important Notes about Travel

There is travel assistance available for those in need who travel by airplane, train, or bus to Durham, North Carolina. You should hear from our designated travel agent to begin making your travel arrangements late April/early May. The travel agent will purchase all tickets.  If the cost of your ticket exceeds $200.00 you must reimburse the program when you arrive at Duke.  You may bring a check payable to Duke University, or we can deduct the balance from your stipend. Please note, we will not reimburse air or train travel that is not made through our travel agent. We expect scholars to cooperate with the travel agent so that we can maximize our travel budget and assist every scholar who has need. Scholars are to arrive on Saturday, June 10, 2017 by noon, if possible. Departures are to be scheduled for Saturday, July 22, 2017. The residence hall will close at noon on that day.
