Five incoming first-year students from North and South Carolina have been awarded Trinity Scholarships, each valued at more than $315,000 over four years.

The Trinity Scholarship covers the full cost of tuition, room, board and mandatory fees for four years of undergraduate education at Duke. In addition, Trinity Scholars have access to generous funding for domestic and international summer experiences, and to opportunities for independent research both in the summer and during the academic year.

The scholarships were established by Duke alumni to honor the university's origins as Trinity College in Randolph County. There are numerous Trinity Scholarships, each funded by different donors. New scholars are named as current scholars graduate.

  • Avery Garmon of Lexington, North Carolina, a graduate of North Davidson High School, who will receive the Susan F. Beischer, George D. Beischer and Frances Hill Fox Trinity Scholarship;
  • Lauren Howard of Oak Ridge, North Carolina, a graduate of Northwest Guilford High School, who will receive the A.J. Tannenbaum Trinity Scholarship;
