Undergraduate Student Resources

Duke Engineering Is First and Foremost a Community

Engineering school is kind of like riding a horse. If you’re comfortable the whole time you’re doing it, you’re probably doing it wrong.

Our engineering school community values its members. We look out for each other. The programs and resources we provide to our undergraduates are important parts of that commitment. It’s our mission to give you the reins, and to help you get back in the saddle if you fall.

Undergraduates and graduate students head to class and socialize with friends during FDOC (First Day of Classes) on Duke’s West Campus.

Filling the Gaps in Financial Aid

Thanks to the generosity of members of the Duke Engineering Community, no eligible undergraduate has to miss an educational opportunity just because of a cost not covered by financial aid.

Maclin Endowment Fund

Created through the generosity of Valecia Maclin, Class of 1992, the Maclin Endowment Fund provides grants that make a difference for eligible students—from computer repair to educational travel.

WIN Empowerment Fund

Students can apply to the WIN Empowerment Fund for grants to cover opportunity-broadening expenses such as graduate exam fees and conference attendance.
