For North and South Carolina Residents
The Trinity Scholarships were established in 1984 through the generosity of distinguished Duke alumni to honor Duke’s origins as Trinity College in Randolph County, North Carolina. These scholarships are awarded on a rotating basis to some of the most gifted students residing in North Carolina and South Carolina. Duke has created the Trinity Scholarships with the support of its North Carolinian alumni to attract the finest students from its home state. Today, scholarships are awarded from thirteen endowments and forty-seven Trinity Scholars have graduated from Duke.
Class of 2013 Trinity Scholars Anne Johnson and Rajlakshmi De thanked their scholarship donors and their parents for encouraging and supporting them during the scholars’ four years at Duke University. During the 28th Annual Scholarship Recognition Dinner, on May 14, 2013, at the O. Henry Hotel in Greensboro, the graduating scholars shared their experiences as Trinity Scholars with their donors and dinner guests. The two graduates also welcomed the three incoming freshman scholars to the program. Johnson and De are among the forty-nine Trinity Scholars who have graduated from Duke.
