Applications are now open for funding from the Duke Student Assistance Fund, which has been established to assist undergraduate, graduate and professional students with unexpected and extraordinary expenses related to the disruptions cased by the COVID-19 pandemic. Students may now submit applications for grants using your Net ID at https://studentassistance.duke.edu.
The Keep Learning site is here to help support Duke students as the university shifts to remote learning for the remainder of the spring semester into summer.
“Today, we are engaged in what may be the greatest experiment in our university’s history—indeed, in the history of higher education. We didn’t ask for this, but we are rising to the charge. And as we do so, I am very grateful to you and your classmates for your flexibility as we transition to new models of teaching, enabled by technology and accelerated by necessity.
The coming weeks won’t be easy, and there will of course be growing pains. But we are committed to doing our very best to make your learning experience exceptional. And if we do this right—and I believe we will—we will give you the tools you need to complete your programs and keep learning, and growing as scholars, despite the unprecedented challenges to our region and the world.
I am inspired by this community’s compassion and concern for one another. And whether we are from campus, or nearby, Duke’s bonds have never been stronger than they are in the face of these great challenges.
I am proud to be a fellow member of this remarkable community.”
– President Vincent E. Price
