Each October, the Duke-Sloan Graduate Boot Camp will bring to Duke 15 talented undergraduates in chemistry, computer science, mathematics, physics, and statistical science. The Boot Camp will encourage participants to think critically about their research interests and skills, provide practical strategies for the graduate admissions process, and introduce participants to Duke’s Sloan departments.

Activities will range from seminars on admissions and financial aid to departmental visits with faculty and graduate students that provide an opportunity for participants to attend classes and tour labs.


Boot Camp attendees will be selected in a competitive process based on academic curriculum, grade performance, and commitment to research.

Applications for the October 2018 Boot Camp will open in March 2018.
