Raj Mehta Memorial Scholarship

A need-based scholarship at the Pratt School of Engineering

The family of Raj Mehta E’22 has established a need-based scholarship at the Pratt School of Engineering in memory of Raj, who passed away in March 2020.

The scholarship will support tuition, room and board as part of Duke’s commitment to meeting students’ financial aid needs.

About Raj

Raj was an avid Duke Engineer and Blue Devil at heart.

He leaves a lasting impact across Duke though the Pratt school, SigEp, Dhamaka, and on the broader community through his volunteer work at Camp Kesem as well as his relationships with family and friends.

His smile was often described as contagious and his caring personality lifted up all those who had the pleasure of meeting him.
